The promotion could set Col. Anthony Henderson on a path to becoming the first Black four-star Marine general. Only 25 African-Americans in the Marines have reached general in any form.
In the Military, the higher you go up in Rank, the fewer the positions are available. I saw others passed over and it was obvious who the better Officer or NCO was. But in so many years and you don’t reach a certain Rank, it’s Goodbye to you.
But I’m very pleased that this Colonel was Promoted to General. Having Combat experience is a Must. And these Jobs are very demanding.
