BLACK WWII VETERAN WHO WAS DENIED PURPLE HEART DUE TO RACISM RECEIVES THE HONOR AT 99

Black World War II veteran Osceola “Ozzie” Fletcher was awarded a Purple Heart after being denied the honor for decades.

Fletcher should have received the recognition after being wounded in the Battle of Normandy in 1944, but was denied the honor — like many other Black Americans in the military — due to racism.

Last week, 77 years after the fact and at the age of 99, Fletcher finally received the Purple Heart.⁠
