Saipan: The Other D-Day by Sergeant Ken Sams 4th Bn, 14th Marines, 4th Marine Division Serial No. 305034 | Craig Sams https://craigsams.com/...sergeant-ken-sams-4th-bn-14th-marines-4th-marine-division-serial-no-305034/ I’m crouched in a shell crater with only one thought in my mind. Why me? Why am I here where people are being blown to bits?
There’s a lull in the shelling. I get up to see who’s around me. I hear it coming and know this one is it. I hit the deck and two guys drop on top of me. I get shrapnel in the thigh. The guy on top of me, our wire chief, has a big chunk of his back ripped out. The guy on top of him is dead.
