[FROM THE ARCHIVES OF AMERICAN HISTORY] BONUS ARMY [NOTE: A MUST READ HISTORY THAT TOOK PLACE IN A COUNTRY THAT SELLS ITSELF AS THE LEADER OF THE SO CALLED "WESTERN DEMOCRACIES" -- The Bonus Army was a group of 17,000 veterans of U.S. involvement in World War I and their families, – who gathered in Washington, D.C., in mid-1932 to demand early cash redemption of their service bonus certificates. On July 28, 1932, U.S. Attorney General William D. Mitchell ordered the veterans removed from all government property. Washington police met with resistance, shot at the protestors, and two veterans were wounded and later died. President Herbert Hoover then ordered the U.S. Army to clear the marchers' campsite. Army Chief of Staff General Douglas MacArthur commanded a contingent of infantry and cavalry, supported by six tanks. The Bonus Army marchers with their wives and children were driven out, and their shelters and belongings burned.]
