Which country's army attacked it's own, unarmed, veterans protesting over promised benefits?


There was a movie about it! It's surprising that so many people forget the violent force government has used get it's way.

    Correct!

    MacArthur led the Army to disperse and remove the 43,000 people, 17,000 vets who had no jobs from D.C.

    In 1936 they were finally paid.

    2 people died, over 1,000 injured.

    Good job!

    Cheers

    Yup, MacArthur led the army in to oust 43,000 vets and families form a squatters camp, in D.C.

    Killed 2 and injured over 1,000 men, women and children.

    About 10 years later the U.S. government final came up with the money.

    Cheers
