BLACKFOOT â€” As Dyle Clark prepared to step onto a landing craft in the Philippines during World War II, a sailor said, "that's enough."
"I turned to my buddy and said, 'there's room for two more and we climbed in," Clark recalled recently.
"When we were climbing the nets onto the boat after that, the general asked, 'did we get them all?' He was told we had left about 350."
Those guys were later involved in a big battle and many were killed, Clark recalled.
