The Soldier That Wagged Her Tail

The story of William A. Morris Jr.’s service in the all black 369th Coast Artillery Regiment and the 4251st Trucking Company during World War II is a story of a black soldier from a small town fighting for a country that is still wrestling with the ugliness of racism. At the core of this soldier’s story, there is a miracle. Morris’ unique story has a real heroine, a dog named Trixie. This little terrier mutt found him in England just before D-Day and stayed with him throughout the war, from Omaha Beach to the Battle of the Bulge. He saved her life and she saved his.
