Chester Davis Sr - AA Marine

The faces of freedom: America's first African American Marines

Like many young men of his era Chester Davis Sr., would accept the call of his country and go to war. It was 1943 and the 18-year-old native Gadsden countian had a choice to make. Should he allow himself to be drafted into the Army or should he join the Marines? He chose the Marines and made his mark on history at the same time. Davis would become one of the first African American Marines.
