My father, a sergeant in the Army, often talked of how he returned from two tours of duty in Korea only to be told by Bell Telephone in Michigan that they weren’t hiring colored people.
Daddy was very proud of his service and loved this country. He raised and lowered the American flag on his front porch every day until his death. But when he talked about his time in the Army, the two events that stayed with him, were how he was treated when he came home, and the racism he endured while training in Georgia.
