Thought I would share these WW2 maps That where carried on Peleliu by this SGT. These are so Rare and so cool to have. There are 3 maps that Marine Sgt carried the hole time he was there on Peleliu,You can see where he landed and where he went on the island by his notes writin on the maps by him,Hard to see in the photos.He was with the 1st Marines, First marine Division , I do not have his file yet, Buy He also fought on Guadalcanal and Cape Gloucester, And Later went on to Korea. Not sure I can get his File yet,He stayed in till 1958. So its only been 59 Years. I,m sure his file will be awesome. He was never wounded  for being in 2 war's.These are the only peleliu battle maps I have ever seen .

Nick  Awesome battle used maps very rare.  You'll need to send in Foia request for his records for now.  62 years is the rule.
