2020 Memorial Day Salute to Sgt. Earl K. Bell

0

THIS 2020 MEMORIAL DAY IS IN MEMORY OF MY VIETNAM VETERAN BROTHER SGT. EARL ‘BULL’ BELL.  A MAN’S MAN 24/7.

He was a Military Cop (MP) in Mannheim, Germany, starting fullback on the base football team, Heavyweight Boxing Champion, table Tennis Champion and a softball umpire. He led black military soldiers on downtown nightclubs that had policies of “No Blacks allowed”! He confronted U. S. Army MPs who tried to intervene. His actions did not sit well with U. S. Army brass. He was all set to sign for another tour, but decided to separate from a racist Army and return home to DC.

Bull Bell the Champion

Some how Jet Magazine got hold of our stories, Earl confronting racism in Germany and his big brother making out with a racist President Richard Nixon at the White House. The beat went on. Earl applied for the DC Police Department and discovered racism was just not confined to Germany. He passed the physical and scored high on the written exam, but he received a letter from black Assistant Chief Maurice Turner a home town boy, saying he was ineligible because of his previous juvenile record.
