No. The story goes that Robinson was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, when he boarded a bus and sat down next to the wife of one of the men in his unit who was sitting towards the front. The bus driver told him to move to the back and he refused. The driver told one of the officers on the bus and the officer went to Robinson and told him to move to the back. Robinson again refused. He was arrested and charged with insubordination, which resulted in a court martial. But a military tribunal exonerated Robinson of the charges since a few months earlier the Army had issued a directive that forbade segragation on buses and Robinson was given an honorable discharge.
