This BLOG is dedicated to the memory of my father, Chester Nowlen, Sr. My Dad had the opportunity to play as extra in the movie Ernie Pyle's "Story of G.I. Joe". My Dad was one of the many army G.I.'s that were hired as extras to make the movie, but he was one of the few that was seen through out the movie and had various speaking parts.
They had planned to show Dad wounded during the movie, as you can see from one of the pictures below, but that part was cut out.
The movie was unavailable for many years, but is now available on VHS and DVD. I hope you will get a chance to watch the movie and look for the scenes my Dad is in.
