    Pfc. Roy J. Naquin (from left), of Chacahdule, La., Staff Sgt. Donald A. Lyon, of Cincinnati, and Pfc. Perry l. Owen, of Des Moines, Iowa, all members of Company E, 145th Infantry, 37th Infantry Division, walk through a lane between barbed wire, carrying 60 mm mortar shells from the 2nd Battalion command post to the perimeter of Company F during the Battle of Hill 700, March 9, 1944. The battle, waged from March 8 to 12, 1944, on the Island of Bougainville in the South Pacific, was among the bloodiest and most fiercely fought days the Buckeyes saw in their nearly 600 days in combat during World War II.
