Muster Roll Personal History

Private Derald D. Fisher

The following is the entire history of Derald D. Fisher, in Company C, 1st Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, for 4 days. It is an example of the futility of war. No veteran of C-1-23 remembers who he was, nor what platoon or squad he was with, nor has any memory of his looks or person. He died with us.
