So many stories and experiences get lost with time from my tours in Iraq & Afg, I can’t imagine how many will never be heard from these types of warriors. It is good (history) that he wrote his book and told of his experience. Experiences, today’s youth could stand to read a time or two. He speaks about a diary he found on the battle feild. Time for a C-Gar! (Thanks "Pincher")
Now, the diary has been translated and juxtaposed with Meadows’ recollections of World War II in a new book, “The Taking of Saipan,” from a local publisher. Meadows, 90, now lives in Orange and often shares his war experiences with local churches, high schools and other groups.
