What an incredible story! #BlackHistoryMonth #GoNavy

What an incredible story!

#BlackHistoryMonth #GoNavy

Throughout the month of February, we will be honoring Black History Month by featuring inspirational Sailors from both the past and present.

The first Sailors we are featuring are known as the "The Golden Thirteen".

In January 1944, there were nearly 100,000 Black Sailors in the United States Navy, but none were officers. That would change when a group of sixteen Black enlisted men were assembled at Recruit Training Center, Great Lakes, in Illinois for officer training that month. The odds were initially stacked against them as there was still a strong sentiment within the Navy that African Americans could not succeed as officers. The normal officer training course was sixteen weeks, however these men were expected to complete it in eight – a move that they believed was an attempt to set them up for failure. The Navy also expected a twenty-five percent attrition rate, similar to that of white officer candidates. However, the group of sixteen were determined not to fail, and supported one another throughout the brutal pace of the training. Though lights out was at 2230 each night, the group placed blankets over their windows and studied together by flashlight, each man bringing his expertise to help strengthen the skills and knowledge of the others. When the course was over, all sixteen passed their exams. In fact, their marks were so outstanding that some in Washington were certain that the men had cheated. When the group was forced to retake certain exams, they scored even higher, with an average grade of 3.89 out of 4–the highest average of any class in Navy history at the time.

Despite the fact all sixteen had passed the course, the Navy still wished to only commission 12, or seventy-five percent, as officers. Twelve were selected, and a thirteenth was made a chief warrant officer, hence the nickname “The Golden Thirteen.” The other three were sent back into the enlisted ranks with no explanations given.

The Golden Thirteen was comprised of:

Jesse Walter Arbor

Phillip G. Barnes

Samuel Edward Barnes

Dalton L. Baugh, Sr.

George Clinton Cooper

Reginald E. Goodwin

James E. Hair

Charles Byrd Lear

Graham E. Martin

Dennis Denmark Nelson

John W. Reagan

Frank E. Sublett, Jr.

William Sylvester White

“And so, Thanksgiving. Its the most amazing holiday. Just think about it — it’s a miracle that once a year so many millions of Americans sit down to exactly the same meal as one another, exactly the same meal they grew up eating, and exactly the same meal they ate a year earlier. The turkey. The sweet potatoes. The stuffing. The pumpkin pie. Is there anything else we all can agree so vehemently about? I don’t think so.” – Nora Ephron, November 2010

Our Story

In 1904, several Naval officers, wives of Naval officers, and civilian friends saw the need for more formal and organized assistance. The Society was incorporated on January 23 of that year. Initial funding came from the proceeds of the 1903 Army-Navy Football Game held at Franklin Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In its first year, the Society gave $9,500 to widows and families of enlisted men.

For over a century, the Society has expanded its services and programs to support the changing needs of service members and their families. Our support is provided by people who care about making life better for Sailors and Marines. Some things never change.

NMCRS has evolved through the years and currently provides emergency financial assistance to eligible recipients in the form of: • Interest-free loans or grants to deal with emergency needs • Education loans and grants • Lifetime benefits information assistance • Money Management • Budget for Baby Workshops • Thrift Shops • Visiting Nurse Services For more information, please call (202) 433-3364 -or- visit our website: http://www.nmcrs.org/locations/entry/washington-navy-yard
