jesusnunez17 What a great book I just finished reading. Reading Eugene B. Sledge's story was an adventure a wild ride. It made me see the Pacific Campaign of WW2 in a whole different perspective. Out of all of the studying that I have done about WW2 and the studying that I've done about the Pacific part of it, this was something else. I see it so different now. I was able to see through it in the life of the Marines in a more personal way. There were actually moments that some parts kinda disgusted me because of how gory it sounded or came close to having nightmares or I guess I did have nightmares, it was crazy. Sometimes I did feel anger towards the Japanese for the way that they would execute a Marine No one should ever die in a painful torturous way or when they would still shoot at a wounded Marine or fire at Marines trying to get a wounded Marine into safety. But its war. What a great book though. I now see how they felt when they came back home and said that folks in the States just will never understand how it was. I don't think I will ever understand.

jasminedeee As we approach Memorial Day, often with an appreciation for the day off of work more so than the true reason for this day, may we consciously take the time to honor our fallen soldiers and heroes, and appreciate those Veterans around us who had the fortune of coming home. #WithTheOldBreed 1mon

alicecl93 March/April read! Can't even begin to say how much I loved this book!! It's an absolute must read for any american! Definitely very difficult subject matter (I cried multiple times) ... But reading the horror that this man and so many others went through for our country makes me feel extremely thankful and blessed! #WithTheOldBreed #EugeneSledge Seriously read it! 2mon
