Download PDF for this date

The Army announced yesterday that Secretary of the Army John Marsh has set up a high level task force to help the Justice Department track down fugitive Nazi war criminal Dr. Josef Mengele. The task force will be headed by the Army’s Deputy General Counsel, Darrell Peck. The announcement came a day after Lt.Gen. William Odum, Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, was criticized by a Senate subcommittee for not having sought further information on the Mengele case on his own initiative.
