Standing for Something Greater

Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, Mr. Doris “Dorie” Miller was serving coffee aboard the battleship USS West Virginia.  Mr. Miller was an African American and the highest job to which he could then aspire in the US Navy was that of messman.  At the time, the majority of US Military Officers were negatively critical regarding the allowance of African American individuals serving their country in the battlefield.
