Black History Month: Sergeant Major Gilbert "Hashmark" Johnson

"Throughout his Marine Corps career Johnson provided leadership to his younger and less experienced comrades. It was at Montford Point he was given the name "Hashmark," because of his age and many years of service.

In 1943, he was among the first black men to be trained as Marine drill instructors. He also served as field sergeant in charge of all recruit training at Montford Point. As a member of the 52d Defense Battalion on Guam in World War II, "Hashmark" asked that black Marines be assigned to combat patrols from which they were currently exempt. Once approved, he personally led 25 combat patrols.

Johnson later served in Korea with the 1st Shore Party Battalion, then later with 2d Battalion, 1st Marines, and finally as administrative advisor at the Headquarters of the Korean Marine Corps. Asked if he had experienced any problems as a senior black NCO serving in predominantly white units, Johnson characteristically said "I didn't encounter any difficulty. I accepted each individual for what he was and apparently they accepted me for what I was."

Johnson went on to become one of the first black sergeants major in the Marine Corps. Sergeant Major Johnson transferred to the Fleet Marine Force Reserve in 1957 and retired in 1959.

On 19 April 1974, the Montford Point facility at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, was dedicated as Camp Gilbert H. Johnson, Montford Point, Camp Lejeune, in honor of this outstanding Marine. "

Black History Month: The men of the 51st distinguished themselves as the finest artillery gunners in the Marine Corps, breaking almost every accuracy record in training. Unfortunately, discrimination towards African American fighting abilities still existed and when shipped to the Pacific, the 51st and 52nd were posted to outlying islands away from the primary action. The only Montford Marines to see action, and record casualties, were the Ammunition and Depot Companies in Saipan, Guam, and Peleliu.

Marine Forces Special Operations Command

Throwback Thursday

U.S. Special Operations pioneer and Raider legend, Major Jim Capers - the story of our heritage would be incomplete without acknowledging what Major Capers has contributed to the community.

Major Capers is the Marine Corps’ first black special operator, a member of the inaugural class of the U.S. Special Operations Command’s Commando Hall of Honor, recipient of a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars with “V” for valor, and three Purple Hearts. Most notably for his time in Vietnam, he is one of the most decorated Marines in Raider history. He became the first African American to command a Marine Reconnaissance company and to receive a battlefield commission.

HEY GUYS THIS IS AN OUTRAGE...AMCC, MAY HAVE WON THE BATTLE, BUT RETIREES AND MARINE CORPS VETS WILL WILL THE FIGHT...PLEASE HELP! TO: ATLANTIC MARINE CORPS COMMUNITIES 5401 MARYLAND AVE. CLNC 28547 FROM: OLLIE NELSON 5161 COLORADO AVE. CLNC 28547 RE: NON-RESIDENTIAL EVICTION NOTICE – DATED OCT. 10, 2018 I am in receipt of this letter which advises to move immediately. I find the time/date impossible. My family has been drastically affected by both hurricanes. There is no way possible for me to up root my family, especially my 32 year old special needs, adult son. The care and logistics for him requires more planning and thought, plus as a disable veteran who suffers from heart attacks, open-heart surgery and PTSD this would be emotionally devastating to me. Where is your compassion and empathy during these difficult and trying times? The hurricanes have already placed undue stress on my family's finances. Where would I get monies for a last minute move? This letter has already set me in a medical frenzy, elevating my blood pressure, and placing me under undue duress. I pray that none of you ever find yourselves in such horrendous situations that you have placed the residents such as me in. Sincerely, Ollie Nelson Service-connected, Disable...AMCC respects you, your family, and your business. We promise not to crowd your inbox with useless content. Please take a peek at the important update affecting you, our resident, and your military life. 10 October 2018 Good Afternoon, As you are aware, Hurricane Florence crippled the local area and caused catastrophic damage to homes throughout AMCC Camp Lejeune, New River, and Cherry Point areas. The storm damaged a large portion of our housing inventory resulting in a housing crisis where we are now faced with a lack of habitable homes for military families. In efforts to mitigate this housing crisis, AMCC stopped all inbound moves to enable military families to relocate from severely damaged homes to homes within our housing areas. Even with all of these efforts, the housing shortage for military families affected by the storm remains. Earlier this week a letter was mailed to non-active duty residents in a month-to-month lease living with AMCC. While this decision was incredibly difficult, we are providing you a 30-day notice to vacate your home and end your month to month tenancy with us. It has been such an honor to serve you and your family, and it is so unfortunate that the Hurricane has affected our housing in such a dramatic manner. Please know we have dedicated resources available to answer any questions at the AMCC community offices. Our office hours are 0800-1700, Monday thru Friday. Please stop by or give your community office a call. To reach your community office by phone, please call (866)509-2424. Your community management team will be in contact with you to discuss the next step in the process. Once more, we have appreciated having you as our resident.
