Following on from my post yesterday about London Steverson...

Over at Coast Guard News, John has posted an article by Christopher P. Evanson from the Fifth District public affairs staff titled Looking Back: A Veteran Remembers Coast Guard Desegregation. Good stuff.

Picture: Retired Master Chief Boatswains Mate Robert L. Hammond poses along side a photo of himself taken after graduation from Coast Guard recruit training in 1942.
