COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Merrill Burroughs | Headquarters Battery, 206th Anti-Aircraft Battalion - Army

5:01   |   To draftee Merrill Burroughs, the toughest part of basic training was not knowing when you would be rousted and put to a task, and then not being told what the task was or where you were. He was made a training cadre and offered the option of staying stateside, but after forming a bond with the men he'd trained, he went with them overseas. He met Paul Blair, who's niece became his wife.
