On 14 November last year CMC authorized the creation of four (4) all black units. The Director of Personnel and the Marine Quartermaster had opposed this move on the grounds that the new units would require technical billets, particularly in the supply specialties, which would be nearly impossible to fill with available enlisted black marines. Either school standards would have to be lowered or white marines would have to be assigned to the units. In keeping with the order "Designation of Units for Assignment of Negro Marine," approved by CMC, 2 Dec 49 the mixing of black and white Marines was allowed while On-The-Job (OJT) was taking place.
