“Sgt. Basilone in his personal humility and unwavering dedication to the men who served with him, became a true hero of the American people during World War II.”
Jim Proser, I'm Staying with My Boys: The Heroic Life of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC

“I was a specialist machine gunner so I had the privilege of humping a Browning water cooled over ten miles of jungle trails and back when it came time for duty. The only good thing about it was that my arms and shoulders got to be as hard as the steel I carried. I could crack a walnut in the crook of my arm. And my legs were used to carrying the extra seventy pounds up hill and down. I could run all day long.”
Jim Proser, I'm Staying with My Boys: The Heroic Life of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC

Jim Proser, I'm Staying with My Boys: The Heroic Life of Sgt. John Basilone, USMC
