My Journey as a WWII Marine tells the personal story of lived experiences as an enlisted Marine who very quickly continued his tour of duty in the leadership role as 2nd Lieutenant. The author wanted to write a book to provide a glimpse of what it was like as a Marine to live through one of the most important wars of our country. John was assigned to a specialty area of service that required him and his men to be on the field of battle to provide those services in the Pacific. “We had to be prepared to do anything that was needed, especially as we were taking small islands to put down the Japanese”. Throughout the book, John guides the reader to experience what it was like through his eyes as a WWII Marine.
