COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Dick Whitaker | 29th Marine Regiment, 6th Marine Division - Marines

3:16   |   His unit had an 82% casualty rate on Okinawa, the costliest battle in the Pacific campaign. Dick Whitaker was there and he laments that the battle got overlooked in the media of the time. He would have rather gone home but he got sent to China for six months, which turned out to be good duty.
