Honorably discharged from the US Army for service in the Pacific theater, Isaac Woodard received a battle star and the Good Conduct, Service and World War II Victory Medals. He wore his uniform February 24, 1946 on his discharge date display his pride while he boarded a Greyhound bus headed for his family back in North Carolina. He asked the bus driver to make a restroom stop without incident, but Woodard encountered trouble later during the ride. The police of a small town had asked Woodard to exit the bus and show his discharge papers. They brought Woodard into an alleyway, repeatedly beat him and arrested him on disorderly conduct. The attack, only hours after his discharge, left Woodard permanently blinded and with partial amnesia.

The local court ruled him guilty and sent him to a subpar medical facility, where his family found him weeks later. The public became greatly outraged at the negligence, with artists such as Orson Welles and Woody Guthrie taking to their crafts to protest. When tried at court, the officers were found not guilty and left unpunished, while Woodard moved to New York City for the remainder of his life. Disturbed by this dereliction of duty, President Truman ordered the creation of an interracial committee, a new civil rights bill and the passage of Executive Orders 9980 and 9981, which required federal integration and banned discrimination in the military.


Materializes descriptions of user’s achievements, whether it was from official organizational work or personal betterment. If no prior emblem exists, a patch with a visually provocative design will appear over the wearer’s arms or chest. The more noteworthy or astounding an accomplishment, the more hate and jealousy will be unjustly directed towards the wearer’ especially if they are considered a minority in their present location. Extreme cases can incite onlookers to physically beat the wearer out of consciousness, at which point the uniform reverts to its original state.
