HAZtLTON "Why can't I wear 'em—ain't , this a war to save western civilization?" SIDE GLANCES By Galbroith "Marines were surging ashore everywhere." "They hacked at the jungle." F RIDAY, AUGUST 7, Cont.-As our landing boat slid up on the beach, I jumped over the bow and joined the Marines who were surging ashore everywhere. We were still puzzled by the lack of opposition. "There's a little firing in there," said a grizzled Marine veteran, motioning toward the jungle. "Looks like the Japs'll take to the hills. It's another Nicaragua-this plncc'll be alive with 'em later, fighti ~ in the jungle." I set out to catch i.i> .vith fast-moving Col. Hunt, who had evaporated from the beach, taking his staff svith him. I passed through the coastal belt of cocoanut palms, then through a beaten path cutting through a field of shoulder- high parched grass, and then into the thick, shadowy jungle. Beyond the stagnant Ilu River, it was easy to make one's way through the dank jungle, for the Marines had hacked a swath three or four feet wide, penetrating miles into the interior. The advance elements of Marines were thousands of yards beyond that—and scarcely two hours had elapsed since our first wave hit the beach! 1 found Col. Hunt's command post, as it was called; actually only an undistinguished part of the jungle, where communications men were busy installing field telephones. "The Japs were after our ships..." We had a ration-can lunch, and then at 1:30, the Japs staged their first air raid. I heard the quick, basso "whoomp, whoomp, whoomp" of anti-aircraft fire, and saw the sky fill with dark brown smudges of shell bursts. It was evident that the Japs were after our ships in the bay. A flight of 18 of our fighter planes swung across the sky, the whine of diving aircraft reached a crescendo, and in a few minutes the raid was over. With the coming of the dark, the macaws began to squeal in the tree-tops. The sentries were jittery on their first night on the island. I awoke many times to hear the "Night made the sentries jittery." call of "Halt!" followed almost immediately by gunfire, SATURDAY, AUGUST 8-A runner came back from our foremost elements this morning to report that tJic Airport, prize of the invasion, has been reached without contacting the enemy! It was just noon when the quick-paced "whoomp- whoomp" of anti-aircraft fire opened up again, and I could see the dark bursts plastering the whole dome of rhc iky over Tuhigi, The Jap planes were back after our ships— our lifeline.
