William Pendleton was inducted into the United States Army in 1942 and served until 1946. He was an engineer boat and shore officer, serving in New Guinea, Borneo, and the Philippines. He had attended KU before joining the Army and graduated with a degree in economics in 1947. He began KU Law School in 1954 and graduated in 1957. He practiced law in Lawrence. Interviewed by Pattie Johnston on Mar 3, 2006, Pendleton 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 community institutions receiving grants. The transcript of the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Watkins Community Museum of History (Lawrence) and through the Kansas State Historical Society. The first twenty minutes of the interview were not recorded so there is no information on Pendleton's early personal history or entering the military.
