Help The OSS Society Pass a Law (It's easy.)

What is The OSS Society?
The Office of Strategic Services Society celebrates the historic accomplishments of the OSS during World War II, the first organized effort by the United States to implement a centralized system of strategic intelligence and the predecessor to the US intelligence and special operations communities. It educates the American public regarding the continuing importance of strategic intelligence and special operations to the preservation of freedom in this country and around the world.

Why pass a law?
The OSS was the World War II predecessor to the U.S. intelligence and special operations communities. It was founded and led by the legendary General William "Wild Bill" Donovan, the only American to receive our nation's four highest military honors, including the Medal of Honor. President Roosevelt called General Donovan his "secret legs."

When General Donovan died in 1959, President Eisenhower said: "What a man! We have lost the last hero."

It's time to honor the "last hero" and all the heroes of the OSS with the Congressional Gold Medal. (more)
