Here is the third in a series of three interviews with WWII Veterans. Bob Coury was a Captain in the Army. His story follows.

What was your job as a Captain?

I had a full company of men who unloaded ships in Okinawa.

How did that go?

We did a great job of keeping equipment, and supplies to the soldiers fighting Okinawa.

Did you have any times you almost died?

I was up on one of the ships and somehow I feel off into the ocean. I was in between the ship and a barge that was moving in the waves. If I didn’t get out of there fast the barge could crush me. I swam fast to the end of the barge and was able to make it to shore. (Near death experience)

I asked him how hard it was to unload the ships in enemy territory?

It was very hard because the Kamikaze planes were trying to hit the ship we were Unloading.

Any advice to young recruits?

Always obey your leaders, and do your best.

_______________________________________________________________

I have a side story about Bob Coury. I was shopping for groceries one day and I saw a man with a WWII hat on. I went up to him and said, “Thank you for your service. ” We both went on our way and I thought why onearth didn’t I ask him if he would allow me to interview him.

I Figured I had made a huge mistake. However when I got in line to ay for my groceries there he was in line. I didn’t hesitate, and asked him if I could interview him. He said sure and handed me one of his cards.

I looked at the card and it blew me away. This guy owned all the Bob’s Hamburgers restaurants in the area! I knew him from way back in highschool.

______________________________________________________________

His push was that he had 19 cent hamburgers. He happend to build his first restaurant in the street I walked home from high school. He was there working everyday.

My mom gave me 25 cents to get a burger every day on my way home. Bob even stopped to talk to me from time to time. I got a cup of water and chomped away.

I never thought for a New York minute that this guy would be back in my life.

We have become good friends. He just past the age of 100 this year and he is still going.

Here is another interview with a WWII veteran. Ira Friedman fought in WWII and Korea. His story has two near death experiences:

I sat with Ira Friedman for a short interview that was loaded with drama:

Tell me of some of your moments that you faced death.

I was getting ready to head to Korea to help fight the war. We were in a hanger in formation, when I saw an old friend from WWII. I wanted to be on the same plane leaving as he was. I raised me hand and requested to be moved from plane one to plane two and the sergeant barked out, NO!

I looked around the hanger and saw a man that looked like he was in charge. He was a captain. I asked him the same question and he refused at first, but I persisted. He shouted, “Get on the damn second plane and get out of my hair.”

I was excited and even sat next to by buddy. About half way to our destination we heard from the pilot that the first plane had crashed killing everyone on board. I was suppose to be on that plane. (Near death experience # 1)

I asked him if there was another time he felt he faced death.

He said that when he was at a briefing in Korea, a Lt. said there was need to have seven men go on a reconnaissance mission. He pointed at me and said, “You are one of them.” I quickly told him none of the men had ever been on reconnaissance. He shouted as he broke his point stick. “That is an order!

Seven of us went on that mission and only three of us came back alive. (Near death experience # 2)

I asked him how he got in two wars

I had just gotten out of the military after WWII when the Korean conflict erupted. They drafted me again because of my experience.
