"If we don't try, we don't do. And if we don't do, what are we here for?"
– Red Eichholz
So says Red Eichholz. Well, Jimmy Stewart said it first in the movie "Shenandoah", but Red echoes it here. What a great quote for arguably the 'Greatest Generation'. A generation who tried. A generation who did. This is Red's remarkable WWII story of enlisting in the Navy but exiting as a United States Marine...at least in experience and spirit.
This is: "Eichholz, a service story".
