Summer is traditionally a time for relaxing, for leisure — maybe traveling to a scenic locale. Seventy-seven years ago this summer, many of America’s most-promising young men spent the summer in France — not on vacation but waging a desperate war against Hitler and his legions.
We are bound to continually honor and recognize their courage and sacrifice. This summer, a campaign is underway to give official recognition to one group of deserving GIs who have been denied that honor for decades: The Ghost Army.
