The Unforgettable Story of a Marine Hero at the Battle of Iwo Jima

By Jack Lucas, D. K. Drum & Senator Bob Dole
Narrated by Lloyd James / 5 hours 23 minutes

At the height of the Battle of Iwo Jima, the day after the island invasion began, Jack Lucas and three other Marines were attacking a Japanese pillbox when two enemy grenades landed in their midst. Private Lucas jumped on both of them, driving them into the volcanic ash. Then they exploded. Thus did a seventeen-year-old from North Carolina become the youngest soldier in the twentieth century-and the youngest Marine in history-to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. Today, when Jack Lucas speaks, crowds gather to honor him and pay tribute to Marine heritage and pride. Mr. Lucas is as close a thing to a rock star as our World War II generation has.
