via A true patriot, John James, 98, becomes a lieutenant after 76 years

Happy Independence Day! Please click on the link above to my blog Becoming Valley Forge to read about Lt. John James, who typifies all that this country stands for.  In 1776, there was a miracle in Philadelphia. There was one here last week, too, at the Museum of the American Revolution, when Lt. James got his Lieutenant’s  commission after 76 years because of the Army’s racial separation policies.
