Background on T. Sgt. Fred Welker, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Feb. 5, 1942.
— “A Night in a Foxhole” recorded on one of the Marshall Islands. The names are a bit difficult to discern, but the recording was apparently made by Marine combat correspondent T. Sgt. Fred Welker and engineer T.Sgt. Keen Hepburn. The audio quality isn’t great, but it does capture the insanity of war. In the middle of heavy fighting, a chicken wanders past.
