Oscar Carter writes:

Thank you for taking time to honor my mother, Gladys S Carter.

She was a proud citizen of the United States and the State of Virginia. Our family had many connections with Virginia, in fact, as she, her husband and two sons attended Virginia State University and I was stationed at Fort Lee and served as Administrator at a hospital in Newport News.

My mother was particularly fond of the dedicated men and women who served in the military, particularly those of African-American descent who served when the armed forces was segregated. She held them in very high esteem as paving the way for African-Americans to serve alongside White-Americans, today.

Thank you Senator Blevins and the entire Senate for remembering my mother’s contribution to this country and the State of Virginia.

Oscar Carter
