A Message From The State Commander
The National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. recognizes and honors Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. for his unwavering commitment to social justice through peaceful nonviolence means. This message would resonate not only in the United States but abroad as well. Dr. King made mention that the lack of adequate health care and poverty are issues that true Americans can not be silent about. He stressed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ROBERT L. WATSON
