COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

David Greene | 3rd Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division - Marines

6:43   |   The Japanese awoke one day to the sight of 850 ships off shore at Iwo Jima. The naval bombardment was not enough, though. Marine radioman David Greene remembers eating his ration one day sitting next to a 16" solid projectile that had skidded to a stop on the beach. He never saw the kamikazes that plagued the ships, but he did see and hear the Japanese version of the Buzz Bomb.
