Abstract Jarrett (b. 1925) was born in Nephi, Utah, and had a rural childhood, working on his father's farm. There were eight children in his family, all in a small two room house with no electricity or running water. Mr. Jarrett married in March of 1944, knowing that he would probably have to go into the service. He began his military service in August of 1944. After basic training and training as a basic infantryman, he was sent to Leyte Island, The Philippines. He fought against almost no resistance. Next he went to Ie Shima, where again there wasn't much resistance and then to Okinawa where there was very strong resistance. He was wounded on his 30th day on Okinawa and evacuated to, first Hawaii and then to San Francisco, CA. He was separated from the service in September 1945. Mr. Jarrett goes into some detail about his reflections at the end of the war, and about actions he'd participated in. He was also affected by the war for many years. Interviewed by Benjamin Bahlmann. 75 pages.
