Brown, Woody

Service: MarinesUnit: 1st Marine Division

Woody tells what fighting in the Pacific on Peleliu was like.   It was 115 degrees and the Marines had to drink water from containers that had held gasoline before they were used for their drinking water.  Woody drank out of mud puddles  because the water from the cans tasted so bad.  Woody was wounded at both Pelilue and Okinawa while serving in the 1st Marine Division.
