William Russell - taken on Tinian Island 1945
William and Catherine Russell

In 1943, William Russell enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was told he would be serving with the Seabees. ‘Rusty’, as his wife Catherine calls him, describes his experience in the South Pacific as we continue with our focus on World War II-era stories.
