2
00:00:06,718 --> 00:00:08,727
There were long piers on Guadalcanal

3
00:00:08,852 --> 00:00:11,431
and we really and truly figured
none of us

4
00:00:12,220 --> 00:00:15,056
will survive,
that we were expandable.

5
00:00:17,893 --> 00:00:19,496
The Japanese navy came in

6
00:00:19,621 --> 00:00:21,729
and sank all of our escorts.

7
00:00:23,045 --> 00:00:26,651
The American navy suffered
one of their worst defeats in history.


8
00:00:28,600 --> 00:00:31,197
And our supplies, food

9
00:00:31,700 --> 00:00:33,950
and most of our ammunition
went down with it.

10
00:00:38,881 --> 00:00:40,623
By September of 1942,

11
00:00:41,409 --> 00:00:45,578
the marines had been left to fight
the battle for Guadalcanal alone.


12
00:00:47,826 --> 00:00:49,836
They were vastly under supplied.

13
00:00:49,961 --> 00:00:51,968
And many were on the verge
of starvation.


14
00:00:53,350 --> 00:00:55,888
We knew that our navy had left

15
00:00:56,688 --> 00:00:58,933
and that the Japanese
had control of the sea.


16
00:00:59,326 --> 00:01:01,434
And that they can
supply their troops,

17
00:01:01,559 --> 00:01:03,104
and we... we couldn't.

18
00:01:04,989 --> 00:01:07,237
With thousands
of Japanese reinforcements


19
00:01:07,362 --> 00:01:08,860
pouring onto the island...

20
00:01:09,455 --> 00:01:12,544
The marines were strafed
and bombed continuously.


21
00:01:14,882 --> 00:01:16,935
Pressure was on us
from the Japanese,

22
00:01:17,060 --> 00:01:18,453
24 hours a day,

23
00:01:18,787 --> 00:01:21,122
and they bombed every day

24
00:01:21,406 --> 00:01:23,124
in big formations.

25
00:01:23,602 --> 00:01:25,566
They just kept coming in

26
00:01:26,253 --> 00:01:28,754
and guns just pounding.

27
00:01:31,123 --> 00:01:33,217
At the mercy
of the Japanese bombers,


28
00:01:33,571 --> 00:01:35,470
and without any naval support,

29
00:01:36,119 --> 00:01:38,431
the marines' battle
get another enemy:


30
00:01:38,782 --> 00:01:41,058
the jungle on Guadalcanal.

31
00:01:42,839 --> 00:01:44,562
The jungle on Guadalcanal

32
00:01:46,004 --> 00:01:48,473
was practically impenetrable.

33
00:01:51,070 --> 00:01:53,089
The malaria was vicious,

34
00:01:53,938 --> 00:01:58,117
boys would come down with chills,
half temperature was 105.


35
00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:02,508
The whole Gudalcanal campaign was

36
00:02:02,633 --> 00:02:05,573
one of near starvation
as I recall it.


37
00:02:07,652 --> 00:02:10,630
After enduring more than a month
of jungle warfare,


38
00:02:10,900 --> 00:02:12,924
the marines faced
the Japanese offensive


39
00:02:13,424 --> 00:02:15,343
to retake their lost airfield.

40
00:02:16,643 --> 00:02:19,178
On Guadalcanal,
I developed a sort of a...


41
00:02:19,451 --> 00:02:20,747
formula in life,

42
00:02:20,872 --> 00:02:24,644
in which there're times,
that you just pray and hold on.


43
00:02:26,230 --> 00:02:28,474
And that's what we did
on Guadalcanal.

44
00:02:29,253 --> 00:02:30,303
Repeatedly,
