"We had footlockers we kept locked, and if you lost the key, he put a bucket on your head, and you had to march up and down the squadbay, chanting, ‘I’m a s---bird from Yemassee because I lost my locker key.’”

On a serious note, read the article. It's about a Marine who landed on 5 different beach heads (Roi-Namur, Eniwetok, Saipan, Tinian, Iwo Jima).

Sounds appropriate for tonight - I'm watching 'The Pacific' on DVD. Quite an amazing generation...
