I was on New Guinea, New Britain, Peleliu, Okinawa, and China from early 1943 to 4 Dec 1945, my 21st birthday, with hdq 1st pioneers batt. I normally was in combat with 2nd batt. 7th. I made the landing on Orange Beach near White Beach on 15 Sep 1944 at Peleliu. I give my prayers and everything in my body to a fellow combat marine Sledgehammer. I salute him for the works he did in telling our story of the 1st Marine Division in combat at Peleliu and Okinawa, and also have his tape of Peleliu 1944 of him and his buddies in combat. I myself was hit 3 times, once at Cape Gloucester, and twice at Peleliu, so I can reminisce very much on his writings and tape.
