The story takes place in the rural North Carolina area in the early 1940s. It is the story of a six foot colored boy who has a skin pigmentation of a white boy and he also has a hair and facial features that most white boys have but he does not want to be labeled as a white boy. He enlists in the Marine Corps through a misunderstanding in his enlistment papers. His fellow recruits and his superiors all think that he is a white boy unbeknown to him. He serves in the second war for Guam and he is decorated for his bravery. He returns to the United States and is charged with training new recruits who, like himself, were allowed into the marines via a document signed in 1942.
