Dick Williams
Teacher & Former Resident of Micronesia

Dick WilliamsI was invited to go to Truk firstly in late 1969 as an educator. While there, I learned the language and began to meet World War II Japanese military vets, both Army and Navy. These men were Trukese or Trukese/Japanese and were full of tales of their war exploits, just like the veterans I had met in the USA.

From 1969-1973 I lived on first Truk, then Kusaie, and finally Ponape. I left there in 1973 and went to live and work in New York City until 1979, when I returned to Micronesia. This time, I lived on Dublon Island for a year and then moved back to Moen Island where I had started out in 1969. Upon leaving there, I went up to Guam for a few months, and then returned to California in April, 1981
