A “white feather” scroll bestowed to Harry S. Truman, “in recognition of the infamous policy of cowardice of the only American president ever to knuckle under to an enemy; by a president who allowed himself to be bulldozed and blackmailed by the Reds, and panicked by frightened “allies” into tying our fighting sons’ hands, and ordering their commander NOT to win this war.”

Issued by the Fighting Homefolks of Fighting Men, a right wing organization founded by retired U.S. Army Captain, Eugene R. Guild (1895-1979), that accused the U.S. government of abandoning thousands of U.S. POWs who were being held in Communist prison camps in North Korea, China, Russia, and North Vietnam. Guild’s own son, a Marine, was killed in Korea in 1950. Robert Heinlein’s The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag was dedicated to Guild. Item #07108
