    Larry Elder, son of Staff Sgt. Randolph Elder, speaks after receiving the Congressional Gold Medal on his behalf during an award ceremony here, Aug. 16, 2013. Staff Sgt. Elder was a Montford Point Marine, one of 20,000 African American recruits to enlist in the Marine Corps shortly after it was desegregated in 1941 by President Franklin Roosevelt. The Marines attended recruit training at Montford Point, Camp Lejeune, N.C., and served during World War II, as well as Korea and Vietnam. Larry Elder is a radio personality and host of the Larry Elder Show on 790 KABC in Los Angeles.
