The Original Montford Point Marines, the corps' first black unit formed in 1942 during World War II, are honored with the Congressional Gold Medal on June 27, 2012 at the United States Capitol. Brief speeches by several members of Congress are included.

The Congressional Gold Medal is awarded by Congress and is the highest civilian award in the nation. The award comes more than seven decades after the Montford Point Marines broke the military's last color barrier . . . with approximately 20,000 trained at Montford Point, NC from 1942 to 1949.
