StoryCorps Atlanta - Adriane & Stanley Sasine
We hear from Stanley Sasine, who was part of a group of World War II soldiers called Merrill’s Marauders. They were tasked with getting the Japanese out of Burma, now Myanmar. Stanley was one of the few who survived to see the Marauders’ last battle. Today he’s 86, and he told his story to his grandson, Adrian Sasine. Parts of this conversation recall a violent scene, which may be unsettling to some listeners.
