COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Philip Coon | 31st Infantry Regiment - Army

7:23   |   From Sapulpa, Oklahoma came Phillip Coon, a member of the Creek tribe who volunteered for the draft just before World War II. He could already drill, thanks to the military rigor at the tribal school. It was also there that he read about exotic Pacific islands which caused him to volunteer again, for duty in the Philippines.
