This is a plea to honor the heroism of Sgt. Waverly Woodson, Jr. 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 Black people 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 Black people depicted on the D-day invasion in “Saving Private Ryan”?
