Abstract Donald Sutherland and his twin brother Jerry were born in 1924 in Sodus, New York. Shortly after their birth, they were brought to California, where they grew up. They discuss growing up and going to school during the Great Depression. They received their draft notifications on June 2, 1943 into the Army. They received basic training together at Camp Roberts, California. After basic training, Donald and Jerry split up and Donald went to Ft. Ord. Donald was sent to the Pacific as a combat replacement for units fighting on Guadalcanal (Americal Division). His unit, the 162 Infantry M Company, landed on Bougainville, Solomon Islands. He was involved in sustained combat in the Solomon Islands. After the Japanese surrender, his unit was sent to Japan. He returned home in 1945 and became a manufacturing engineer. Interviewed by Winston Erickson. 66 pages.
