    Montford Point Marines claim place in history

They were among the first black Marines from the segregated Montford Point camp in Jacksonville, N.C., to leave that camp, integrate the Marine Corps and help pave the way for integration throughout the country. And the two men, now 87 and 83 years old respectively, walked together Thursday into the South Carolina premiere of the documentary "The Marines of Montford Point: Fighting for Freedom." They are among the dwindling number of World War II-era black Marines who trained at Montford Point between 1942 and 1949. The film, a collaborative effort between South Carolina State University in Orangeburg and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, tells the little-known story of the black Marines who trained at Montford Point...
