FOR RELEASE MONDAY, FEB. 10, 2014, AT 12:01 A.M. EST. - In this photo from Feb. 3, 2014, veteran William Cole, of Racine and formerly of Beloit, with his friend, Emmetta Young, right, are photographed at the Beloit Daily News in Beloit, Wis. Cole, 90, served in the 93rd Infantry Division in the South Pacific during World War II. While the segregated division was a part of most campaigns, it received little recognition.
