March 10, 2019

Minister James Branum discusses the heroism of US Army Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds (1919 – 1985).

Roddie Edmonds was a master sergeant of the 422nd Infantry Regiment during World War II, who was captured and became the ranking U.S. non-commissioned officer at the Stalag IX-A prisoner-of-war (POW) Camp in Germany, where—at the risk of his life—he prevented an estimated 200 Jews from being singled out from the camp for Nazi persecution and likely death.
