William Douglas Lansford

Early in February 1942 as volunteers to the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion Bill Lansford and I first met at Jaque’s farm, where the Battalion was in training and we were converted from Marines to Marine Raiders. We were together in E Company and the Long Patrol and participated in the battle at Asamana.

Bill has had an illustrious career as a writer, director and producer in movies and television, as well as an author of books and articles in national Magazines. The Raider web site is most pleased to include some information relevant to his activities.
