When the United States entered World War II, it called upon its citizens to make sacrifices for the war effort and take up arms to defend democracy. Millions of Americans, including many who were treated as second-class citizens in their own country, answered the call. In honor of Veterans Day, Dr. Sara Abosch-Jacobson, the Barbara Rabin chief education officer, and Dr. Charlotte Decoster, senior director of education, share the stories of three World War II Upstanders – Héctor P. García, Oveta Culp Hobby, and Dorie Miller – who fought for equal rights for their fellow service members and veterans.
