520    Determined to be a U.S. Marine Corps officer, Bruce 
       Yamashita enrolled in Officer Candidate School, where he 
       was the target of persistent racial harassment by officers
       and staff. After enduring nine weeks of emotional and 
       physical abuse, Yamashita was "disenrolled" in April 1989-
       kicked out of the Marine Corps because of the color of his
       skin. Fighting Tradition is Yamashita's own story of his 
       courageous struggle to expose a pattern of racial 
       discrimination against minorities that has existed at 
       various levels of the Corps. With the support of a broad 
       coalition of community and civil rights organizations, the
       Hawai'i-born law school graduate fought a five-year-long 
       legal, political, and media battle against the military 
       establishment that ended in his commissioning as a captain
       and the revision of Marine Corps policies and procedures.
