Master sergeant stripes on his green campaign vest, William J. Hanusek, was just 21 when he found himself on Guadalcanal as a medic with the 164th Infantry Regiment of the Americal Division. Hanusek was one of 15 members of the Guadalcanal Campaign Veterans Association who commemorated at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., the 70th anniversary of the south Pacific battle that raged from Aug. 7, 1942 until Feb. 9, 1943.
