Good Afternoon Marines, Sailors, Civilian Personnel, families and friends of MCCSSS,

February 1st marks the beginning of National African American History Month! It is my honor, and a sacred responsibility, to serve as the Commanding Officer of MCCSSS and Camp Gilbert H. Johnson as the home of the Montford Point Marines. The legacy of Montford Point is the history of the first African American Marines. The first Recruits arrived on Montford Point in August 1942 and 20,000 earned the title of United States Marine here until 1949. These Marines initially served in the 51st and 52d Defense Battalions, and many served in the Pacific theater. These Defense Battalions were developed out of a need to provide mobile offensive and defensive capabilities in the Pacific. I personally believe that there will be renewed interest in the mission of these Defense Battalions as some Force Design 2030 concepts take a similar path.

As we continue to rebuild from Hurricane Florence, I look forward to the restoration of the six Montford Point historical buildings here on Camp Johnson in the very near future. A highlight will be the renovation of the National Montford Point Museum in summer 2021. The museum provides a home to tell the history of the camp with the largest collection of artifacts, photographs, and documents from this important time in Marine Corps history. It is a celebration of these heroic Marines who blazed a trail for others to follow while valiantly serving in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.

I encourage you to walk the grounds of the Montford Point Marine Memorial, and reflect on the significant contributions of African American Marines past, present, and future. The three concentric circles of the monument represent the ripple effect of the influence these brave Marines had on improving the moral fabric of our nation. The anti-aircraft gun and sculpture represent the Marines and their mission, while the wall of stars pays tribute and respect to each of the 20,000 Marines trained aboard Montford Point. The pillar, central to the monument, acknowledges that the individual Marine, the Marine Corps, and society all bear a collective responsibility to the ideals of equality and dignity for all.

R,
Eric J. Adams

How to define approachability?

Approachable means capable of being approached; open and accessible to people; easy to meet with and deal with. More importantly, for leaders it means being easy to understand and connect with. This means your subordinates find you easy to talk to, and others do not fear your reactions to information or situations. In a sense, being approachable comes down to perceptions of others and the reputation a leader sets for themselves in their interactions with others.

25 Holiday Artifacts in 25 Days -- Marine Doll ⁠

Day 7: Thomas E. Rheineck enlisted in the Marine Corps in January 1942 after the devastating attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor. Before Cpl Rheineck shipped out with the 3rd Battalion, 28th Marines to fight on Iwo Jima he made a visit home to see his family. During the visit Rheineck had the opportunity to see his little niece, Sally R. Pound. As a parting gift, he gave Sally a stuffed Marine doll to remember him by, which she cherished and played with as a young child. Cpl Rheineck was killed in action on February 23rd during the Battle on Iwo Jima.⁠
