WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Commission on African-American History will host a reception before tonight’s City Council meeting to honor the Wilmington Chapter of the Montford Point Marines. The reception is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Five of the chapter’s surviving recipients are scheduled to attend: Frances M. Hooper, James B. Wilson, Ivan LaBlanc, Howard Spencer and Wilson Thigpen.

The Montford Point Marines were the first African-Americans to serve in the US Marine Corps, beginning in World War II. They trained at Montford Point near Camp Lejeune.
