At some poit today or tonight I will start reading Helmet For My Pillow. This is one of the biographies that the new HBO series The Pacific is based on. It’s been a long time since I read any books about World War II. This should be interesting.
The book is about Robert Leckie’s time from boot camp through his duty time in the Pacific during WWII. He enlisted in the USMC the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked.
While I enjoy being a STARFLEET Marine I believe it is important to remember those that served in the military and the sacrafices they made for all of us.
