the difference of their origin did not prevent seven men to form a bond of friendship

There are bonds of friendship formed in the strangest of ways or through an uncommon circumstance; and the one that our heroes have in this memoir solidifies that notion. As the Second World War sparked, many able bodied men were thrown into battlefield together with their peers or total strangers from another state or even another country. Yet the difference of their origin did not prevent seven men to form a bond of friendship that became the inspiration of author Richard Schuit’s “The Unbreakable Red Arrow.”

With a rich story to tell, Schuit tells of the exploits of his father and six other men during the unforgettable World War II. This is the story of six boys, born in southeastern Wisconsin during the early 1900’s; one in particular, Rick Schuit, my Dad. After losing his mother in childbirth, the story entails his early life through the 1930s. In 1940, before the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor, Rick was drafted into the Army. There, he met and served with my “uncles” in the Thirty-second Red Arrow Division of the U.S. Army.

Narrating the lives, the escapades, and the many battles the seven men fought in New Guinea during World War II; Schuit shows readers the conditions they endured, as well as the people whose paths they crossed, and how these affected their lives. With highlight on the respect those soldiers have given their respective country and the honorable acts they had done for its freedom, the tale of the “The Unbreakable Red Arrow,” shows not only a very strong bond maintained until now but a group of men’s story of fealty to their homeland.
