Jim White was in G-3-29 and he's still alive and kicking (as far as I know).  You can find his essay "On the Point of the Spear" under the "Stories" tab.  If you'd like I can give him a call and see if he remembers your father.

Hi Bob:  I am so excited to see your response and learn about Jim!  I read Jim's On the Point of the Spear story - such a valuable resource for me.  Jim and my Dad seem like they had the same war story, except my Dad was wounded a few days earlier.  Yes, please connect us.  I would love to be able to chat with Jim, too.  I can send Jim a picture of my Dad, which might help.  THANK YOU!

marinedaughter,  I just saw your post.  My father was also in G Company, 3rd Battalion, 29th Marines.  He was wounded 2 days after your father on Half Moon Hill.  My father passed away two years ago.  But I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with him and attended the annual reunions where I learned a lot about his time on Okinawa.  As Bob stated above, Jim White  is still alive and can tell you a lot about the Company.  My Father was a BAR, and Mr. White was part of his fire team.  Mr. White was with my father when he was shot.  They remained friends for more than 70 years.  I, myself, keep in touch with Mr. White.  He is a good man.  Best wishes!
