But Fazzio was interested in learning more about Woonsocket’s role in the military deceptions the U.S. Army’s 23rd Headquarters Special Troops orchestrated during the fighting in Europe and went to the Stadium Theatre Thursday evening for the Rhode Island premiere of Rick Beyer’s documentary film “The Ghost Army.”
