COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Braswell Deen | K Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

3:02   |   A Marine doesn't like to say he retreated, but they didn't have enough men, so the word came to withdraw back toward the beach. Braswell Deen was out ahead of most of the unit. In his book, "Trial By Combat," he credits the medic, Bill Jenkins, with saving his life. Jenkins told the others there were men out there, and under heavy fire, crawled up to pass the word.
