Now that's a hero. Those guys got the living excrement shot out of them.
and my uncle who was with the 200th Costal Artillery, better known as the New Mexico boys. They were the first to fire of WW II. These brave boys fired the first shot of WWII after war was declared, left behind to hold the Japs in order to let the others escape to Battan.
