"The plan was for the marines to be inland by the second day, but they were still in the process of trying to get off the beach they had gone in on. Word was received that we would start our invasion at 8:30 in the morning. As anyone can imagine, anticipation and anxiety were at their peak the night of the sixteenth. We could hear big guns and rockets firing all around, and the night sky was lit like day." Within these pages are a few of the memories of a naval signalman, Third Class, during World War II. Follow along as author Bruce Martindale chronicles his experiences from high school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to dangerous missions in the South China Sea and Okinawa, Japan. After reading a fascinating bit of history in A Naval Signalman During World War II, you will come to understand why Bruce says that the war was hell but the service was good to him.
