Allene Carter's father in law was a decorated veteran Yet it was not until the Carter family received a call from the White House that she discovered he was a heroic force in the Rhineland campaign President Clinton awarded the Medal of Honor to several black soldiers who served in World War II Se I had seen the Netflix Medal of Honor series whose first episode was on Sgt Edward A Carter The book by his daughter in law filled in some of the details the show only touched uponSuffice it to say except for the overly long chapter on his father this was an interesting read Amazing as we think about today and totally integrated armed forces by race creed gender etcthat the army that won the peace 70 plus years ago was so racially divisiveMy father was one of the greatest generation I truly hope he was not of the stripe of bigots like Maxwell Clark and Hoover and many others who denied the honor due Edward Carter in his lifetime
