Congressional Medal (WWII) for an African American

A call to honor Sgt. Waverly Woodson, Jr's. heroics at Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944.

Why is this important?

This is an appeal to redress an injustice in the US armed forces in which discrimination against Blacks was rampant. Sgt. Waverly Woodson, Jr. should be added to the short list of African Americans whose valor needs to be recognized by this nation. Were there any Blacks depicted on the D-day invasion in “Saving Private Ryan”? http://www.chestercounty.com/2015/03/13/64967/lincoln-university-honors-a-world-war-ii-hero. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/d-day-hero-widow-fights-for-husbands-recognition-waverly-woodson-jr-2019-06-06/ Should this come to fruition, his widow, Joann, will donate the medal to the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.
