Stories from New Guinea, the Admiralty Islands, and the Invasion of Leyte
During World War II, my grandfather joined the First Cavalry Division. He was selected as a radio operator (at just 17 years old) and shipped to New Guinea before invading the Philippines, and then occupying Japan. I have hours of video footage of him over multiple days speaking about his experience. Recently, I edited the footage into chronological order of his experience. This comes from the second chapter, after his selection and training process. (Please excuse the background laughter).
He’s very funny, so please enjoy!
Also, crazy stories seem to run on both sides of the family, but my grandfather definitely takes the cake when he talks about headhunters.
