The Montford Point Marine Association is a nonprofit Veterans Organization. The speaker will be selective on the theme or topic of discussion. Participation in public programs on behalf of Montford Point will only be authorized when such support is in the best interests of the Association and does not interfere with the purpose or mission of perpetuating the legacy of the first African Americans who entered the United States Marine Corps from the period of 1942 to 1949 at Montford Point Camp, New River, North Carolina. The selected speaker will not endorse political parties or speak at political rallies, events or on religious issues.
