Then we went to the island of Angaur where the U.S. Army was gradually driving out the Japanese. After 10 1/2 months there, I was sent to the island of Guam . I was there when our Air Force dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and on Nagasaki three days later. The Japanese surrendered soon afterward.''
