by Tim O'Neil --- Missouriís own four-star Gen. Omar Nelson Bradley was honored here on June 11, 1945, with a massive parade downtown and a dinner at the Hotel Jefferson. One month before, he had led the million-man Twelfth Army Group to victory in Germany. Americans were still dying on Okinawa and in the air over Japan, but the homefront deserved a break.
