This week’s special guest is 95-year-old Fred Mingledorff, one of the last living combat veterans of World War II. Mr. Mingledorff was there 75 years ago, on June 21, 1944, for the invasion of Guam during World War II, a turning point in the war against the Japanese. He talks with Stan about what he did during the war, how the war affected him, and looking back 75 years later.
Great story, Stan! Similar reactions from my father and four of my uncles. Proud of their WWII service but never really liked sharing their experiences with me as a young boy in the 1950’s. No doubt, The Greatest Generation!
Enjoyed the story very much…My uncle Sgt. Sam P Jones was KIA 21 Jul 1944 during that invasion. He was a radio operator.
Great story very well written. Thanks very much.
