PFC Ray Thomas Harrison
« on: January 24, 2020, 01:41:53 pm »
Saw where Elwin Hart had passed away recently. Notified yesterday that another Marine, PFC Ray T. Harrison of H22/E22, passed away on Oct 24, 2019. Ray was one of the Tarawa Marines I was privileged to talk to in my life. His story was recorded on the Living Tarawa Veterans Project. Ray, who was in H22 at Tarawa, went in with the 2nd Platoon of E22 (same platoon as my dad but not the same amtrac) manning one of the machine guns. Providing a picture below of Ray and his Machine Gun section at Guadalcanal. Some of the names may be familiar to a few here, like Arthur Somes. Ray was a great guy. Semper Fi Marine. May you rest in peace. You are remembered. Thank you.
