Non-Fiction History

The stories in Volume II cover a time span of over a half century of our country’s history, from 1917 to 1969. The first two are by centenarians who enlisted in the U. S. Army in 1917 at the age of 16. Both served in France during World War I. The last story is by a Vietnam veteran who joined the U.S. Marine Corps at age 16 in 1969. Most of the contributors served during World War II and the Korean War. One joined the Marines at age 14 in 1942 and earned the Medal of Honor on Iwo Jima , just five days after his 17th birthday. Several contributors are survivors of the Bataan Death March, and one tells of his years of incarceration in Stalag 17, the infamous German prison camp.
