I want you to meet my friend Larry Kirby, a fellow Marine who joined the Corps right out of high school in 1942. He served in the Pacific theatre, including landings at Bougainville, Guam, and Iwo Jima.
“I came ashore with 230 young Marines, and twenty days later there were just seven of us left standing. We were surrounded by enemy soldiers, machine guns on three sides. I and my six friends shook hands, hugged each other, and said goodbye. Because we knew we were going to die. When you’re looking death right in the eye, and you know it’s going to happen, the fear is unbelievable. I haven’t been that scared since--until now.”
Listen to what Larry has to say about the importance of this election.
