Marine Autographs, California, 1943

In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are links to an interesting sheet of Marine autographs. These men all served with my father in the 4th Marine Division during WWII. His unit fought on Saipan and Iwo Jima in the Pacific Theater.

Almost all of the men who signed included at least a partial hometown address which may be helpful to families doing research, especially in light of the upcoming release of the 1940 U.S. Census.
