Description

Tenuous ties between the Bonus Army and the Communist-led Workers Ex-Servicemen's League drove many to view the Bonus Army protesters as a Communist threat. And in addition, the integrated Bonus Army camps provided a viable threat to the segregated military structure of the U.S. Army. Historian Thomas Allen discusses how the racial and political fears held by the U.S. government affected the Bonus Expeditionary Force.

This is a transcript of an oral history produced during research for a documentary film "March of the Bonus Army".
