COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:46   |   Lineman John Huffhines kept the telephone lines operational on Iwo Jima even as bullets flew all around and shells were landing. He had to remain alert because you never knew when one of the enemy would spring up from a hole. It was a long, dirty month of battle.
