Doyle Simmons was in some of the biggest invasions in World War II, but he fought the war with needles instead of guns.
Simmons was a pharmacist assistant on the hospital ship, The U.S.S. Bountiful, during the invasions of Saipan, Guam, Pelelieu, Tinian, Iwo Jima and Okinowa.
During his service on the Bountiful, Simmons crossed the Equator twenty times, witnessed the testing of the atomic bomb, and was in Japan during the signing of the peace treaty that officially ended World War II.
Looking Back on that time, Doyle Simmons insists he "would do it all over again."
