Daryl Lester was born in the Denver, Colo. area. He enrolled in the US Marine Corps in August 1942, and was involved in several battles on islands in the South Pacific before he was discharged in October 1945 with the rank of Corporal. He returned to the Denver area to raise a family and retired to a cabin in southwestern Douglas County.
Tennal recalls his experiences as a Marine assigned to duty in the Pacific region during World War II. He describes his early days in the Marine Corps and becoming a member of the Marine Corps Band. He also details many of the battles and offenses he participated in while fighting the Japanese on islands in the South Pacific, including Guadalcanal, the Solomon Islands and Guam, and the effects of the malaria he contracted while stationed there.
