COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

John Huffhines | Headquarters and Service Battery, 3rd Battalion, 13th Regiment, 5th Division - Marines

3:38   |   When John Huffhines hit the beach at Iwo Jima, it was just about the time the Japanese defenders unleashed their heavy artillery. They had been waiting for the beach to get crowded and, in the hellish barrage, he buried his face in the sand and knew it was the end of the world. Then he shook it off and rose up.
