Marine Corps Daze Now Available on Kindle


Now Available on


Marine Corps Daze by William Barrons is a hilarious account of a young man who enlisted in the USMC on the day after his 17th Birthday of 1943 because his birthday was on a Sunday.  He faced the hardships and glory of the War in the Pacific armed only with a manual typewriter and an incredible eye for details.  His memoire of World War Two and the days after will jog your memory of locations such as San Diego, Pearl Harbor, the Marshall Islands and Chicago.


In October of 2015 at the age of 89, Bill Barrons deployed with 80 veterans one last time to Washington, DC with Honor Flight, a national organization that flies World War II and Korean veterans back to our nation’s capital to visit the memorials that they fought so hard for.  In honor of that experience Bill and his publisher, are donating all of the proceeds of Marine Corps Daze to the San Diego and Columbus Honor Flight Organizations.  In addition, will provide copies of Bill’s book to any Veteran’s organization for the cost of printing and shipping for the purpose of fund-raising.
