It appears that things are getting out of hand!
This is not a place for name calling or slurs; I agree with some of K Wyer's observations ,but not all.
It probably is, the right time for me to concentrate on my memoirs take a leave of absence from this Board.
The EGOS have really surfaced and are quite negative. It appears that only four persons are qualified to contribute to this Board, according to some opinions. I really don't need a lecture on fact checking at my age! I don't believe I have made any factual errors.
As a 70 year old, African American, the GRANDSON of an ex-slave, a Korean War Veteran, 1951, Pusan Perimeter, attached to the First Marine Division in "Operation Ripper", 3 battle stars, a grandfather, attended segregated schools, segregated Army, SNNC meetings, organized NAACP voter registration campaign a month before Dr. King was assasinated , a city Government official, retired,a Community Development President/CEO for 18 years, a Bank Chairman and Chairman of a City wide public-private city wide develompment entity, I believe I have made some contributions to our community and continue to do so.
I am not a historian, not a qualified researcher or a lecturer on Military History and I don't pretend to be. I have just tried to be helpful with the information I have.
I wish all of you the best. Lloyd
