According to Daily Caller in a special ceremony filled with respect and thankfulness the brave soldiers of America’s World War II Ghost Army were given the important Congressional Gold Medal. It’s a big deal because it’s the first time they’ve been honored in this way recognizing how much they did during the war. Out of the original 1,000 soldiers only seven are still alive today which makes it even more significant. House Speaker Mike Johnson called three of them Bernard Bluestein, John Christman, and Seymour Nussenbaum to the stage showing the strong bond and resilience they shared.

Honoring a Legacy of Deception and Valor

The ceremony brought together a large crowd including many family members of the veterans. People came to show their appreciation for what the Ghost Army did during the war. These soldiers were part of two special groups that used clever tricks to confuse the enemy especially during big events like D-Day. They used things like fake tanks and fake radio messages to make the enemy think they were somewhere they weren’t. Their creativity and quick thinking helped win important battles. As everyone clapped and cheered, Rick Beyer who made a documentary about the Ghost Army talked about how humble these soldiers were. Even though they didn’t see themselves as heroes their actions made a huge difference. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also spoke sharing how their bravery and sacrifices will be remembered for years to come. Their stories remind us of the courage and selflessness that defined their service shining a light on their legacy for future generations.
