Combat Marine Cpl J. White's recollections

Post by tokashikibob » 15 Feb 2011 02:15

Gents,
I just posted a unpublished combat account from Corporal White of the 29th Marines on the site below "on the tip of the spear" he's really descriptive about killing the enemy and combat gear usage while in combat on Okinawa. He's still kicking and into rifle matchshooting, Sit back and enjoy the history.

Semper Fi,
Bob

Interesting web site. I spent two years based in Okinawa from 1983 to 1985. We were too busy preparing to fight the Russians to leave much time for historical investigation, so I never sought out battle sites or went relic hunting. At a bar in Numazu near Mt Fuji I did met a old man who as a youth had been trained for a kamikaze boat. It was the only time the JSDF officers I associated with mentioned WWII.
