WRAIR highlights Soldiers on MLK Day

By Mike Walters Walter Reed Institute of Research

Walter Reed Army Institute of Research highlighted Soldiers in a Martin Luther King's Day portrait series Jan 12. The Soldiers were asked to reflect on the life of MLK, his contribution to racial equality and one aspect of his life that resonated with them. "I graduated from the University of Alabama and when I reflect on the life of MLK, I think about how in 1963 George Wallace stood in the way of two black students who went to school there," said Cpl  Dominique Richardson. "It makes me grateful that I had the opportunity to go to school there...less than 60 years ago, I wouldn't have had that opportunity."
