Robert Freese was once twenty-five while the japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. A month later, he was once drafted. Following a couple of months of teaching within the States, Robert shipped out to Australia with the thirty second Infantry department, the 1st US military unit to take the struggle to the japanese. After taking part in baseball for the department and coaching for conflict, Robert was once transported north to New Guinea with the remainder of the thirty second Infantry department. In November 1942, after enduring a grueling month trip via an unforgiving jungle setting simply to get into place to assault, MacArthur’s forces engaged the japanese on the conflict of Buna, referred to now as “Bloody Buna.” Robert was once within the thick of the motion, because the venture of his regiment was once to take the 2 eastern airfields crucial to the complete operation.

The name Baseball, conflict, and a Bride: (An Okie in global conflict II) comes from Robert’s quest to play expert baseball ahead of global battle II and his position at the thirty second Infantry Division’s crew, his function within the conflict of Buna and amphibious operations, and, his romance of Leona Nievar, which led to their marriage ceremony in November 1944 and, up to now, sixty-five years of marriage.
