Alaska National Guard Officially Discharges WWII Veteran
U.S. Army: In Bethel, Alaska, the Alaska National Guard discharged a living member of the Alaska Territorial Guard from WWII. PVT (ret) Paul C. Charles, lying about his age, enlisted at 12 years-old into the ATG to protect the territory of Alaska from the Japanese during WWII. He has been waiting 65 years for this day. DR - This is great news, but why did it take the Army so long to recognize these veterans?
