The Marines Had A 'Punch'

Record #:
J. Edgar Parker was born in Elizabeth City, but everyone who knew him called him \"Pinch.\" In 1943, he joined the Marine Corps. Poole's article, a combination of his historical additions and Parker's narrative, recounts the story of one young man's journey through the bloodiest battle of the Pacific War--Okinawa. He was one of only 60 original members of his company of 250 Marines to survive.
