Growing up in the South, segregation laws, traditions and the rules of "colorism" were just part of life for William F. Dixon. However, movies and military travel opened Dixon's mind to the way life could be without segregation.

Author's note

I remember when I was in the second grade. We had a small aquarium with one frog inside with a container of water. We students thought the frog was lonely because he had no other frogs to play with him. The teacher explained to the class that the frog was happy and contented because he did not know of a different existence. That was my mindset before I saw movies and my military traveling. Yes, I, William F. Dixon, served in the United States Marines from 1953 to 1957 and in the United States Air Force from 1957 to 1973. BEING BLACK IN THE MILITARY, I SERVED OUR COUNTRY WITH PRIDE. AND I WOULD DO IT AGAIN IF I WAS AGAIN CALLED TO SERVE. This is my story.
