Story needed to be told

Thanks for the super first issue, 2003. "The hero next door," is a story that needed to be told. I know about the segregation and the volunteers to join the combat units during the Battle of the Bulge. I never knew about the reduction in rank for black volunteers and their treatment when the war ended.

You have done them and the rest of us a great service by telling this story. You do great work!
