As the late artist Edward Boccia was a member of the 63rd Engineer Combat Battalion during WW II (known as the Ghost Army) it is with great happiness that we share that President Biden has signed The Ghost Army Congressional Gold Medal Act into law.
Let’s celebrate this historic moment! Join us online for a live program that will bring together Ghost Army veterans, and will feature congratulatory messages, a video history of the Gold Medal and our seven-year journey to its passage, surprise guests, and much more. Best of all, veterans of the unit will have a chance to talk personally about the meaning of this long-overdue recognition.
The Ghost Army Congressional Gold Medal Celebration, Sunday, February 13 at 2 PM Eastern. Watch here!
