I have Robinson’s military record and autobiography in hand. He stood for his men at Fort Riley and against segregation at Ft. Hood. He was considered a top notch morale officer and fought racism daily, but there are three seminal moments that foreshadow his life of leadership at 25. American Icon.

I'm signing because it is fitting that an army base which discriminated against one of its own wold be renamed in our of his contribution and as a sign of remorse for his ill-treatment and that of other soldiers of color.

Thanks for adding your voice.
