Sgt. Steve Maharidge, like many of his generation, hardly ever talked about the war. The only sign he'd served in it was a single black and white photograph of himself and another soldier tacked to the wall of his basement, where he would grind steel. After Steve Maharidgea€™s death, his son Dale, now an adult, began a twelve-year quest to understand his fathera€™s preoccupation with the photo. What had happened during the battle for Okinawa, and why his father had remained silent about his experiences and the man in the picture, Herman Mulligan? In his search for answers, Maharidge sought out the survivors of Love Company, many of whom had never before spoken so openly and emotionally about what they saw and experienced on Okinawa. In Bringing Mulligan Home, Maharidge delivers an affecting narrative of war and its aftermath, of fathers and sons, with lessons for the children whose parents are returning from war today.But when Love Company went in on the landing zone code-named Green Beach 2, there was no resistance. ... It was the platoona#39;s job to guard this station in Okuma, though they called it Hichi, a village some two kilometers inland. ... collect a few and fry them on a huge saw blade from a lumber mill, set over a campfire. ... Kennedy had a .38 caliber pistol on his hip in addition to carrying his M-1 rifle.
