Over the Memorial Day weekend, a woman discovered in ArchiveGrid a transcript of a 1995 oral history interview with her father, James Hunt Bohstedt, at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Research Center. Bohstedt, who had never mentioned the interview to his daughter, details his time in World War II and the Korean War with the 4th Marine Division, 5th Army Corps, and 1st Armored Amphibious Battalion. He stayed in the Army Reserves and at age 60 retired as a First Lieutenant. “It’s been interesting; I still have an
enormous respect for the Marine Corps,” Bohstedt said at the end of the interview.
