NAACP representatives conducted a tour of military bases in West Germany in the early 1970's
and consequently issued this report. They found that to a large extent discrimination both
on and off base was taking place despite President Kennedy's Executive Order that was
supposed to eliminate such discrimination. It was becoming clear that institutionalized
racism affected African-American veterans domestically, internationally, and within and
outside of the military community.
