Five of the most significant landings
in the Pacific . . . Guadalcanal, Ta-
rawa, Saipan, Tinian and Okinawa
. . . from the Second Marine Division’s
history in World
One regiment of
the Second landed in
the initial assault on
aa/|H Guadalcanal. Anoth-
ments in December
Baf and a third unit p_ar-
WmmM ticipated in the final
Withdrawn to a rear base, the Divi-
sion was refitted under the command
of Major General Julian C. Smith, be-
fore sailing for the Gilbert Islands ...
That bloody action, where Marines
stormed ashore against withering fire
is now epic. In one space of 20 yards,
120 Marines fell. But their comrades
moved on, took the objective annihilat-
ing more than 4,000 of the best troops
of Japan. For this outstanding per-
2ND MARINE DIVISION
formance the Second Division was
awarded a unit citation.
With Major General Thomas E.
Watson in command, on June 14, 1944,
the Second Division landed on Saipan
beaches, with the Fourth Marine Divi-
sion on its right flank. After bitter
fighting, the Second captured the
heights overlooking Saipan’s capital,
On August 1, 1944, Major General
LeRoy P. Hunt, succeeded Genera!
Watson in command. Elements of the
Division under Col. Clarence R. Wal-
lace, feinted a landing otf the coast of
Okinawa for two days before the main
Marine and Army forces drove ashore
unopposed on April 1,1945. This care-
fully planned demonstration was par-
tially responsible for the bloodless
seizure of the beachhead.
The same combat team later on was
sent to take the tiny islands of Iheya
and Aguni, off Okinawa, without oppo-
sition. On June 18, 1946, the Second
Division’s 8th regiment joined the
First and Sixth Marine Divisions in
the final mop-up.
