Best Moment Getting ice cream and a coke on the George Clymer before they ran out.
Worst Moment When the Navy guys came around to wash down the deck with salt water before we could get our bed roll rolled up. Always started a fight with the navy crew. The Marines won but the Navy still had their salt water hose.
Chain of Command Col. Alan Shapley Lt. Skip Daly
Other Memories Going down the rope ladder into the Higgins landing craft.
