COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Phillip Gamache | 1st Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division - Marines

10:03   |   If you ran out of hand grenades, you could just pick them up on the battlefield because they were everywhere. That's one memory of Iwo Jima for Phillip Gamache. Another is the many scenes of heroic action from his fellow Marines, such as the time the smallest man in the unit carried the largest man to safety. One of the bravest was their Corpsman, who suffered the indignity of losing a rank once they were back aboard ship. Part 3 of 3.
