Steven Ossad, military historian and biographer of Gen. Maurice Rose, is shown on September 29, 2002, at the ceremony in Middletown, Connecticut, dedicating the birthplace of Gen. Rose. Ossad is speaking before an audience that included 3rd Armored Division WWII veterans, other military veterans, and local dignitaries. Rose, who led the legendary 3rd Armored "Spearhead" Division in WWII, was born in Middletown in 1899. The actual building of his birth was not discovered until May, 2002. Our apologies for the very subpar visual & audio quality of the video, which are due to questionable original camera work and street sounds.
