COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

4:12   |   They took and lost the Okinawan village three times, says Braswell Deen. It was flame thrower tanks that eventually led to the Marines' victory there. As they moved on, he had to leave the man next to him who was shot through the head. It was about this time that an enemy grenade landed in a foxhole and Bill Foster threw himself on it, earning a posthumous Congressional Medal of Honor.
