Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bob Atkinson | K Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment - Marines

4:47   |   Bob Atkinson's favorite C-ration was the pound cake, and he tells about finding something unusual in his cake. R&R seemed non-existent but he did have one six day leave and met his mother in Hawaii because he was sure he would not survive the war. Flying back, he marveled at how pretty the country looked from the air.
