        World War II Veteran Lewis J. Schwartz 
- Sergeant, Marine Corps | Georgia Oral History

        Mr. Lewis Schwartz was a Sergeant in the 3rd Marine Division during World War II. Though he trained to be a cook and baker, Mr. Schwartz carried wounded soldiers and supplied foxholes with ammunition during action in Guam and Iwo Jima. Mr. Schwartz shares his remembrances of the push at Iwo Jima, the decimation of the troops and a particularly moving story of watching another sergeant throw himself on a grenade to save the men in his foxhole.
