5 Star Review of Marine Corps Daze by William Barrons

Bill Barron’s’ Marine Corps Daze reads like a dime store adventure, but is absolutely true, of a guy who represents the Greatest Generation patriotically and selflessly by signing up to serve our country in World War II. I liked his excellent word pictures of military life, for not only his, but of his buddies and the families who prayed for their safety. Bill gets right to the point and clearly tells his story with clarity. He depicts the typical serviceman who faces danger and exhibits humor to keep his sanity. His short book is an easy and delightful read…..wish it was longer. A respectful salute to one of the modest heroes who helped make this country safe and great…………Ray Beiter…Marine.

About William Barrons

Born 1926, in Cadillac, Michigan, the oldest boy of fourteen kids. Survived the Great Depression and joined the Marines the day after I turned 17. Could hardly wait to go fight those nasty Nazis and Japanese. Served 2½ war years in the Marines. Got married, went to college, had kids, re-joined the Marines in 1949 - in time for the Korean War. Became a Marine Second Lieutenant but was a Platoon Commander only for a short while as my sick wife nearly died and I had to resign to care for my family. Became a Telephone equipment engineer with AT&T in Chicago. Then was a kitchen and home remodeling designer for 22 years. Retired at age 69 and began to research and write novels. At age 89, I’m still at it!
