Veterans to share 'Ghost Army' stories on Veterans Day

This year marks 70 years since the end of World War II, and yet we're still learning new and inspiring stories about "The Greatest Generation."

As part of the "Ghost Army," U.S. soldiers used inflatable tanks, fake trucks and even sound effects to trick axis forces on troop movements.
This week in Edgar and Wausau, John Jarvie and Gazo Nemeth, veterans of the ghost army will talk about their role how they confused the enemy during the war.

Edgar teacher Colin Hanson will stop by Sunrise 7 Monday morning to talk about the upcoming presentations and the effect of the "ghost army" on the war effort.

There are two presentations this week, both are free to the public.
Tuesday, the veterans will present at 6:30 p.m. at Edgar High School.
Wednesday's presentation, also at 6:30 p.m. will be held at the UWMC Center For Civic Engagement.

After the event, filmmaker and author Rick Beyer will be on hand to sign copies of his book, "The Ghost Army of World War II."
