This week, Martha speaks with 100-Year-Old World War II veteran James Smith about his time serving as a member of the 1st Marine Raider Battalion.

James discusses his memories of his battalion getting stranded on Tulagi after winning their skirmish on the island, the battles he fought in the campaign of Guadalcanal and how his rigorous training whipped him into shape for war.
