Description

Ikari continues talking about his basic training at Camp Shelby, joining E Company and preparing for their shipment overseas. They would ship out from Newport News aboard a liberty ship, gambling, playing cards and listening to music throughout the shipment. They would arrive in Naples, going through Bagnoli and to Civitavecchia where they would join up with the 100th Infantry. The first combat would be in Belvedere, getting shelled for the first time and fearing the German 88s. He talks about the process of getting to be in reserve, where they would be able to step away from the front line and get a break. After this, he talks about being wounded in action, getting hit in each leg.
