Among the black veterans of the Normandy invasion was Medgar Evers — who would come home from fighting Nazis to fight for civil rights in America.
“Medgar Evers entered the @USArmy in 1943 and served in the 325th Port Company, a segregated unit commanded by white officers, which followed the Normandy invasion into France. He saw action in Liege, Antwerp, Belgium, Normandy, Le Harve, and Cherbourg.” medicinthegreentime.com/medgar-evers/
After using the #GIBill to attend college, Evers moved to Mississippi, going into sales but increasingly became active in civil rights, eventually becoming the NAACP’s state field secretary in 1954. mshistorynow.mdah.state.ms.us/articles/53/me…

Bad. So bad. Bad for our troops, bad our military families and bad our national security. @IAVA and our allies will fight this—just like we’re fighting the ridiculous new attacks on our #GIBill. But it’s really shameful that we even have to. #WTF #DefendTheGIBill #WinterIsHere
If you’re just tuning in, please also check out how @IAVA and our allies are fighting back against a ridiculous attack by bureaucrats at the Pentagon on our earned #GIBill benefits: iava.org/press-release/… #DefendTheGIBill #big6
42,417 people of all backgrounds have signed @IAVA’s petition to the @DeptofDefense & SecDef Mattis to immediately reverse the policy, and put veterans and their families first, instead of creating barriers to access deserved benefits. Join us: change.org/p/secretary-ma… @Change
