On Thursday, K103 listener Larry Bergren from Molalla failed to stump Bruce with this question:
Question: As part of the D-Day planning, General George S. Patton was named commander of the First US Army Group. There was something really unique about the group; what was it?
Answer: It didn't exist; it was fiction. But its radio traffic tricked Germany into thinking that the D-Day landing would occur not in Normandy, but up the coast in Calais, France. It worked, in fact for weeks after D-Day, the Germans kept a number of troops up the coast to battle the First US Army Group.
