Didn't really seem to have much of an effect in the Jim Crow states in the south though.

No -- it ended in because of federal intervention and the biggest catalyst for that was the civil rights movement.

So while the integration of the military may have had an effect, there's really no good reason to believe it did "as much or more to integrate the nation than the more publicized civil actions in the 1960s and 1970s."
