Sergeant Dies was drafted into the Marine Corps in 1943 and served until 1946 in the VMF-155 F4U Fighter Squadron. Interviewed by Janet Johannes on Jul 12, 2006, Dies talked about military experiences in the Second World War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Ellis County Historical Society (Hays) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
