    The above page is the Timeline 1968 page from the book "A Time To Honor."

    Circled is October 16, 1968

    "African-American track stars protest racism in the U>S> by giving 'Black Power' salute during national anthem at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City."

    I was in the Philly Naval Hospital.....it caused quite a ruckus. When you have a whole ward of Marine Combat Veterans.....who gave their arms, legs, and guts while serving America......it ain't pretty, when they see black Africans disrespect our Country.
