Leonard Clary enlisted in the Navy in 1945 and served until 1947. He served on the USS Banner; USS ElDorado; and the USS Bexar. He was born north of Troy, Kansas in an area called Rawhide Holler on June 9, 1928. He grew up in the area and lived there most of his life except for about 15 years in California. Interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Nov 2, 2007, Clary 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 Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
