While I was listening to an interview with World War II Marine Eugene Sledge, i spotted this interview with Don Mates. Don fought in the battles of Guam and Iwo Jima as a member of 3rd Marine Division Commanding General Graves B. Erskine’s personal security detachment. His account of a Japanese night attack is one of the most vivid accounts of night combat I’ve ever heard.
A great interview!
