    Pfc. Burnie W. Hill is posthumously honored with four awards during a Congressional Gold Medal Award Ceremony May 31, 2018 at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida. His son, Clement E. Hill, accepted the citations a behalf of his father, a Montford Point Marine. In 1942, African Americans were given the opportunity to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. Nearly 20,000 African Americans from 1942-1949 were trained separately from their white counterparts at Montford Point, a facility at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
