Travis was a quite a bit older than the other soldiers who enlisted for service during World War 11 He was in his early thirties but most of the soldiers were in their late teens or early twenties Travis had been working since he was a boy so he felt that he knew something about how the world worked He enlisted because he not only felt it was his duty to do so but he also was looking for adventure He was a tall friendly man with a booming voice and a good sense of humor Soon the younger soldiers were coming to him for advice or just to talk about how homesick they were When his platoon needed a leader Travis was chosen It wasnt long before Traviss unit was shipped overseas They eventually wound up on an island in the Pacific far different from any place that the soldiers had ever seen Snakes monkeys and bugs were everywhere and the heat was almost unbearable Many of the men quickly became sick but their biggest problem was the enemy fire that constantly surround them Travis had been looking for adventure but he had to admit that this was not the kind of adventure he had hoped for Still he found himself doing things he never thought he would or could do bandaging wounds planning attack strategies thinking up camouflage ideas and even writing letters home for the wounded soldiers He knew that the men in his platoon trusted him and relied on him and he was determined not to let them down Travis served nearly four years in the army all during World War 11 When he finally returned home he was welcomed with great excitement and joy by his family and friends Travis was glad to be home of course but he knew he was not the same person who set out adventure years before He had seen horrible sights
