Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jack Houston | G Company, 22nd Marine Regiment, 6th Marine Division

6:24   |   The Marines were way ahead of schedule moving through the northern end of Okinawa. Jack Houston found out that the rear was more dangerous than the front when his buddy fled the aid station back at the beach. He watched two ragged Japanese planes tangle with a Hellcat and a Corsair. He cheered when one was shot down but there was some bad news with that. (This interview made possible with the support of JOHN & BARBARA MCCOY.)
