Edsel Stallings: A True American Hero








Meet Former Marine Sgt. Edsel Stallings, the latest Veteran Fausone Bohn and Legal Help For Veterans have the honor of assisting.  Now 93 years old, Stallings is one of the few remaining members of the Montford Point Marines. This distinguished group was the first all-black Marine unit that served in the Pacific in World War II. Overcoming segregation at home and the enemy abroad, the Montford Point Marines were finally honored for their service in 2011 with the Congressional Gold Medal. The Medal is awarded by Congress as the highest expression of national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions. With this recognition, Edsel and his unit join an elite group of African American medal recipients including Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The Tuskegee Airmen, Joe Louis, and Jackie Robinson.

The Medal is planned to be displayed permanently at the Smithsonian Institution so that everyone has a chance to hear this amazing story and pay their respects to these heroes.

We want to thank all Veterans for their service to our country and would be honored to assist anyone who is seeking veteran benefits from the VA. Contact Legal Help for Veterans, PLLC today to find out how you or a loved one can receive the benefits you deserve: http://www.legalhelpforveterans.com/
