John Henry Chaney, during his interment service at John Wesley United Methodist Church Cemetery in Clarksburg, Maryland, Feb. 8, 2024. Chaney was drafted in the Marine Corps in 1943, becoming one of the legendary Montford Point Marines, the first Black Americans to earn the title. Chaney served in World War II and fought at the harrowing Battle of Iwo Jima. In 2012, Chaney and other Montford Point Marines, were presented the Congressional Gold Medal.
