- Corporal, Marine Corps | Georgia Oral History

        Mr. Roy A. Cadenhead reminisces about the smell of artillery slicing through pineapples in a tropical, the shock of watching his comrades fall on Iwo Jima, and how he came to terms with the fact that the Marines were training him to be a killer. Mr. Cadenhead was born in Georgia in June of 1924. As a child, he hunted on his family's farm. He never suspected that his skills with a gun would serve him as he battled against enemy combatants on the far-away mountains of Iwo Jima. He enlisted in the Marines in June of 1943, leaving his family and new bride behind.
