He stood on Red beach and directed his troops to move forward off the beach.. Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he stood there as the main target of gunfire so that he could get his men to safety. more than once because his men's safety was more important than his own life." The Sergeant's name: Bob Keeshan - Captain Kangaroo.
