    • Freedom to Serve

      Seventy-six years ago, President Harry Truman was shocked at what he heard. A decorated soldier, recently returned from the war that defeated Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, was removed from a Greyhound bus, beaten until he was blind, placed in handcuffs and jailed in Batesburg, South Carolina.
