Can someone confirm a USMC WW2 Vet ID


Recommended Posts

I have this named mess tin that came from a local estate sale many years ago.  Its marked Blackie Luebbert  but as I recall the Vets first name was John.  He supposedly served as a combat marine during WW2.  As I understood it the unit he served in was the same unit that many of the Marine raiders were transferred to after their unit was disbanded.   Can anyone confirm that for me.  Greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

Find A Grave has two John Luebberts of about the right age, one KIA in France, and another, PFC John A Luebbert, who was in the Army Air Corps. No Marines that I could see. Find A Grave isn’t exhaustive, so there still could be a Marine with that name, but I’ve found it a pretty good place for this sort of thing.

Wonder if this is him, although not John.
