CHEERS - To our favorite cowboy. He's known as Bruce, Ambrose and "Cowboy." Whatever you may call him, Wednesday was a special day in the life of local resident Ambrose Anderson. He was one of close to 400 Montford Point Marines recognized in Washington, D.C., for breaking the military's final color barrier and serving their country. These veterans gathered to receive the country's highest civilian honor - the Congressional Gold Medal. The trailblazing Leathernecks finally received the praise they never asked for but certainly deserved. Anderson proudly stood among his comrades at the ceremony. On a personal note, Betty is up there smiling down with pride and love.
