On June 6th 1944, whilst down the coast at Normandy the Invasion of Nazi Controlled Europe began, my Uncle (Richard Bridge) helped keep the Germans busy chasing Patton’s 3rd Army on the Beaches of Calais. Uncle Dick was a “Ham Radio Operator and a Bell Telephone System Employee, that had a few electronic tricks up his sleeve. Along with hundreds of others in the Ghost Army fooled the little house painters minions for critical hours and days.

The Ghost Army used inflatable tanks, sound effects, and imagination to fool the Germans on the battlefields of Europe. The unsung heroes of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops and the 3133rd Signal Company Special saved thousands of lives and helped win the war, but their efforts were kept secret for fifty years and have yet to be officially recognized. The mission of The Ghost Army Legacy Project is to preserve and honor the legacy of these men.
