5 Marines of Company K, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment describe the ferocious battle for Peleliu, an "island on fire." 9,000 Marines attacked 10,000 battle hardened Japanese soldiers dug into hundreds of fortified and reinforced coral and limestone caves. The tale of Peleliu is as harrowing as any in the history of modern warfare. A battle of total annihilation fought in inhuman conditions.

My father was one of the Marines there. He still remembered it with horror all the way to the end.

My father was one of the Marines there.

My Mom was in love with a SeaBee, but he got killed in the south Pacific.

Then she met my Dad at a dance hall. She always told my two sisters, "Never marry someone you meet at a dance hall." :-/
