Ranger Roy H. Matsumoto served with the famed Merrill's Marauders during World War II. He provided crucial intelligence information for the U.S. government after tapping into a Japanese army communications wire in Burma, and was instrumental in a mission to hold Nhpum Ga hill in Burma, in which he shouted military orders in Japanese to confuse the attacking Japanese soldiers.
