Aubrey Stewart Project Shares Good News About Recognition of Wereth Soldiers

FAIRMONT -

The Aubrey Stewart Project set up a display in the Marion County Historical Museum to honor a war hero.

Sgt. James Aubrey Stewart of Mineral County was among 11 black soldiers tortured and killed near Wereth, Belgium in 1944.

The story was left untold for many years but now two U.S. Congressmen from Pennsylvania have submitted a resolution to fix that.

The Aubrey Stewart Project came to Marion County to share the news.

"It's never too late for Congress to make amends and to honor these soldiers. Its never to late," said Kip Price, Aubrey Stewart Project. "We try to concentrate on positive things. Instead for worrying about what they did do years ago, we want to concentrate on what they are going to do now."

If you missed the presentation, the Aubrey Stewart Project will be up at the Mountaineer History Expo on March 29 at the Marion County Courthouse.
