February 15, 2013 ‐ By Madame Noire

In honor of Black History Month, MadameNoire is sending a daily salute to the African American women who inspire us every day of the year. From the big screen to the forefront of the service lines, these are their stores of courage and integrity.  Today we are saluting LaKeya Benton, a fitness instructor, softball coach for the local YMCA, and daycare center volunteer who served in the Marine Corps for four years. Watch her story here.

    While I am not fan of Armed services, it is good to see a young woman doing it and doing it well. Lakeya made good points about honor and courage and leadership.

    Nice story. I don’t stick with things either, but this helps.
