WWII Heroes Awarded Congressional Medal
Previously recorded: Leaders of the U.S. House and Senate present a Congressional Gold Medal in honor of members of the First Special Service Force, whose fearlessness and bravery contributed to the liberation of Europe and end to World War II. The First Special Service Force, dubbed the "Devil's Brigade" by the German opposition, was a special operations unit formed in July 1942, and was comprised of 1,800 soldiers from the United States and Canada. It was the only unit formed in WWII with troops from the U.S. and Canada - building on the special bond between the two countries. The unit was instrumental in targeting military and industrial installations.
