    FORT BENNING, Ga. – Lt. Gen. Gary M. Brito makes keynote remarks Dec. 11 at the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, Georgia on occasion of the unveiling of a new "Diversity in Leadership" display. The display uses informational panels and photos to highlight three African American Soldiers whose service marked historic milestones in the Army's progress toward diversity. The three are: Brito, currently the Army's Deputy Chief of Staff G-1, but who in his previous assignment was the first African American commanding general of Fort Benning and its U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence; Master Sgt. Walter Morris, who served during World War II as first sergeant with the Army's first All-African American Airborne unit, the 555th Parachute Infantry Company; and Master Sgt. Milton "Davey" Lockett, the first African American in Army history to serve as an instructor at Fort Benning's elite U.S. Army Ranger School, and who also served in the Korean War and Vietnam War.
