  3. Hello, My name is Jim and my neighbor was in 1st Batallion 8th Marines during the war. He is 94 years old and still in decent health. I am constantly researching his unit and I have hit a wall. I was wondering if you would be able to provide me with any research such as rosters, muster rolls and whatever you can find. I would greatly appreciate any help you would be willing to provide!!!

    Thank You and God Bless,

    1. Jim, I realize this posting is over two years old but if you want to know more about 1st Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division in WWII you might want to visit the TWS (Togetherweserved) Marines web-site. I am one of the Memorial Profile Team that is memorializing all of the Fallen Marines of WWII and I am a unit historian for almost all of the WWII units and I would be pleased to offer my assistance in fulfilling your interest in learning about 1/8.

    Kye was 17 at that time and joined when he was15 .

  5. Hello, thanks for pulling this together. My father, Chester L McCoy Sr. was in the 24th marines during WWII . I will review the photos with him to see if they bring back memories. He’s still active and relatively sharp at 95. Hopefully he will be with me for a few more years. I can be reached at mccoyqara@yahoo.com.
