In 1943 Steven Grant Rogers was enlisted to the United States Army.
Everyone knows the righteous, patriotic Captain America and his story. People might have heard of his mother, Sara, who was a nurse and died of tuberculosis. Perhaps some have even heard of his father Joseph who had died of mustard gas while in the army.
But the world is oblivious to another Rogers, the one who was left behind in the story of Captain America. The one who struggled to keep up with his big brother and his great friend.
The one who was left with empty house, dead parents and ghost of a memory of a happy family.
The same year Steve became a supersoldier, William decided to sneak himself into the army. Like Steve, he felt the need to fight for his country, fight for those who can't, fight for his parents, fight for Steve.
He was too young to be allowed there, barely fifteen, he had the advantage of looking like a youthful eighteen year old. In the times of war, chaos, grief and dying love, no one had time to pay attention to underage soldiers, such as William Rogers.
