One of our listeners shares amazing story about his grandfather!

Frankie,


I had to pass this story along because of recent events, plus it being Veterans day. My grandpa, Stanley Nance served in the most unique WW2 company that no one has really heard of. PBS did a documentary a couple of years ago and that link to that is below.Just yesterday he was recognized by Gov. Herbert and even declared it a day in Utah for the special unit "Ghost Army". Once i get the updated KSL article I'll forward it on.He spent almost the entire war behind enemy lines deceiving the German army. They used inflatable vehicles with speakers and other ways to attract attention of the Germans. Once they received word they were spotted they would deflate the tanks and trucks pack them up and they would disappear. Again it is the most amazing war story and people don't know about it. I'm doing what I can to get the word out. He is 99 and turns 100 in February. This man deserves all the credit in the world for being amazing. He has 14 children and he lost his wife to cancer. Please help spread the word!
