Over the past few weeks, I have discovered that my father, August Christman, was in the North Dakota National Guard, 164th Infantry, 1st Battalion, B Company. We found a company photo taken at Camp Claiborne,LA in June of 1941. In my research on the internet, I found a book that is being written about the 164th's battles in WWII by Terry Shoptaugh. Terry's book was great reading about the war stories that he has collected from many sources. It greatly helped me to see exactly what my father faced in their battles with the Japanese on Guadalcanal.
