Retired Montford Point Marine Joseph Beaver addresses the crowd after receiving the Congressional Gold Medal during a ceremony at the Tolerance Education Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., Feb. 24. “This honor is beyond words, I never thought I would be the recipient of anything like this in front of my congressman and so many friends and family,” said Beaver. “America is truly a great country. Although it wasn’t always, I have been dedicated to equality and ask the rest of you to always remember to stand up and fight for what is right.” (Official Marine Corps Photo By Lance Cpl.
