"I served 32 years in the military: 6 years in the regular Army during the Korean War and Cold War and the rest of the time in the Reserves. I was in the first group of instructors for the NDCC (National Defense Cadet Corps) in the black schools in Memphis. That was in 1962. The white schools had had ROTC since 1919, but the black schools didn't have anything because of segregation. The NDCC was something we had looked forward to for a long time. I was at Hamilton High School."
