A memoir. Upland native Louie "Bounce" Benedict recounts his time in the Navy during World War II.
Jumping into the most perilous part of the war, Louie experienced nearly every theatre and aspect the war had to offer. From battling kamikaze pilots to rescuing prisoners of war, Louie went from the small town of Upland to world of war.
Authors Rachel Pfeiffer and Hope Bolinger were blessed to interview Louie for his memoir, something he wished would be accomplished before his passing.
Louie received a copy of his memoir a year before he passed in 2018.
