Dave Apkarian joins us again to talk about a great marine, and sprayer of nightmare fuel (a flamethrower), Hershel Williams, and the part he played in the battle of Iwo Jima. That battle was horrible no matter what side you were on or what you were doing, but Hershel made it just a tad bit worse for the Japanese as he was walking around with a weapon that turned regular soldiers into well done soldiers. He proceeds to kick ass up and down that small ass island, and still lives a long, full life afterwards.
