“There are not many of us WWII POWs left now. I’m 96 years old and have outlived all of us captured by the Japanese on Guam the day after Pearl Harbor….All of us in Zentsuji and Osaka POW camps went through those 1368 days together. Not all of us made it home.” Pete Marshall was the tenth of twelve children raised on a farm in rural Missouri during the Depression. After joining the Navy in 1939, he trained as a hospital corpsman and was stationed in Guam. The Japanese invaded Guam the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed. Pete was taken prisoner and sent to Japan for the duration of the war, living in primitive conditions with little food or medical supplies and working as slave labor. The stories illustrate how his childhood experiences helped him survive captivity. His POW experiences, so poignantly remembered here, had a continuing impact throughout his life.
