In 1948, President Harry S. Truman signed an executive order integrating
the military and mandating "equality of treatment and opportunity."
Shortly thereafter, military children began growing up in closely confined and
integrated schools and neighborhoods, where it was actually against military law
to make a racist remark or not intervene when someone else does.
What is this like? Does it make the children proud of their individual heritage,
but appreciative of diversity, or does it create problems of ethnic identification?
What happens when they leave the military environment?
