PR Award Recipient, 1971

The deputy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, and the highest-ranked active black Air Force officer, was honored for his belief in an American unity that transcends groups and philosophies, and his own life’s example of making it happen. James used part of his speech to thank the Legion for its work toward securing the release of Southeast Asia POWs, some of whom were personal friends of his.
