About Stanley P. Holloway
Stanley P. Holloway didn't say anything about the war for fifty years. Then his son started asking him questions. What followed was an awakening of stories and experiences that spanned four years, including numerous island invasions. Holloway had brazened machine gun fire while Marines died around him; he had watched a banzai attack approaching; he had been in mortar barrages and howitzer attacks; he had contracted diseases that could kill; and he had found the love of his life.
Books are available in the Friends Bookstore and Gallery in the Visitor Center.
