Special Webinar: Heroes of World War 2
Ashbrook/TAH held a special webinar on Wednesday, 8 December about 10 little-known American heroes of the Second World War, all recipients of the Medal of Honor. Take some time to consider their sacrifices and character as you remember the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and America’s involvement in the war.
