COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Bill Richardson | 4th Battalion, 14th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division

6:02   |   Before he left for boot camp, Bill Richardson got what he thought was a short haircut. Not short enough as it turned out. He didn't have any trouble getting up in the morning, which saved him some trouble. As a Marine, he knew he would have to qualify on the rifle range. Not qualifying would have been unthinkable. (This interview made possible with the support of JOHN R. ASMUS.)
