COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:35   |   After basic training, it was off to Quantico for artillery school. Bill Richardson learned every job on the guns and then it was time for a train ride to California. The Marines had it better than the Army on that trip, at least at lunch time. The last training before deployment took place off the coast at San Diego. (This interview made possible with the support of JOHN R. ASMUS.)
