Harold Rediske

WWII - USMC

Story

As a child, Harold roamed the sun soaked battlefield of the Little Big Horn- a place etched in American history for its savagery and death. Nearly 15 year later, he would once again roam a battlefield synonymous in American history for death, but this on a far greater scale; Iwo Jima. With the 4th Marine Division, Harold participated in landings on Roi-Namur, Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima, miraculous surviving all without a scratch. Harold passed away in 2019.
