Information Help on Great Uncle- USMC Okinawa


Recommended Posts

Hi guys- I'd really appreciate any help with information on my great uncle. I was able to find the text version of his casualty card but not the actual card itself which I believe would have more information. The text version seems to back up the family story that he was wounded on Okinawa. His name was Thomas William Morris- Co.B 1/1. From Michigan. If possible I'd like to confirm that it was Okinawa and try to put some circumstances around his wounding.

 

Thanks!

Like Blacksmith shows he was indeed on Okinawa. Service # 404601 if you were so inclined to order his file. Ancestry shows he does have a casualty card for the Okinawa campaign, but it fails to list the exact day and nature of wounds. You can request his casualty card here at this email address: history.division@usmcu.edu .This is the Marine Corps Historical department on Quantico that keeps the casualty cards. His actual card should have more information. Hope this hepls
