Part 2--A World War II South Pacific vet and my uncle talks about his radio background
April 28, 2009
We were sitting in Ron Anderson's living room in Destin, Florida and when we started talking, I knew I needed to get my Flip video camera. As a very young man, he was one of thousands of American in the South Pacific during World War II.
He was a small, but very important piece of the war effort. His job was to keep radio transmitters going on the several islands he was on. He did this right until the time that he went to Japan right after the atomic bombs were dropped.
In part 1, he describes this experience.
In this part, he talks about his job experiences before he went on active duty.
