Naval History's Guide to “The Pacific”

Episode 10 - Part 10

After the Japanese surrender, Leckie, healed from his wounds, leaves the hospital and returns home while Sledge heads back to Alabama to be reunited with his family and Sid Phillips. Lena visits Basilone’s home and has an emotional meeting with his family. Leckie adjusts to postwar life by resuming his old job and starting a new relationship, but for Sledge, unsure why he survived the war seemingly unscathed, adjustment will require more time.
