COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Bob Passanisi | 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), Merrill's Marauders - Army

5:27   |   When Merrill's Marauders got hold of a couple of artillery pieces, they were so well positioned that the Japanese could not hit them. The thing they could not ward off, however, was malaria, and it finally caught up with Bob Passanisi. He thought he was goldbricking when he was evacuated. (This interview made possible with the support of COL ROBERT W. RUST, USMCR (ret.) in honor of LtGen Lawrence Snowden & LtGen George Christmas.)
