The Ghost Army Legacy Project president Rick Beyer
The Ghost Army used inflatable tanks, sound effects, and imagination to fool the Germans on the battlefields of Europe. The unsung heroes of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops and the 3133rd Signal Company Special saved thousands of lives and helped win the war, but their efforts were kept secret for fifty years and were only recently officially recognized with the Congressional Gold Medal.
 

Tickets on sale now. $50.00 each. Additional $20 for the VIP Meet & Greet before the luncheon.
