Celebrating WWII servicemen of Irish Descent

Wednesday, Mar. 17, 1943

Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 2.40.11 PMSt. Patrick’s Day – a day for parades and festivities and for celebrating the wartime service of Americans of Irish descent. Another cause for cheering: The Russians are within 50 miles of Smolensk and the Germans have been pushed back on the western front. One small news note suggests deep changes coming on the Home Front: a Texas farmer is on trial in Federal court for abuse of his “negro” worker. It’s not an equal rights move, at least not yet.
