Lew Shulman presents "15 Days: Peleliu"
In the 1940s, Jordan "Doc" Winer enlisted and trained to be a Pharmacist Mate/Corpsman. Along with his unit—the famed 1st Marine Division—he participated in the attack on the island of Peleliu during the incursion that became known as the “Battle of Bloody Nose Ridge” in September 1944. After his passing in 1997, Jordan Winer’s family discovered a diary. Join presenter Lew Shuman—a Museum volunteer, former Director of Broadcasting for the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans, and US Army veteran—as he shares Jordan’s personal moments as a young Navy man serving his country thousands of miles away from home.
