Picked up a 4th Marine Division named Jacket


Recommended Posts

Yessir, cakewalk research.  Lovely.  I’ll add a few bits to start us off.  

 

He enlisted 7/23/42; please see below.  He appears on 4th MARDIV rolls, as a member of A-1-20 (Engineers), with final MR appearance being in October of 1945.  This entry was from a casual company, at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia, likely recovering from illness / injury.

His MCSN was 437001.  

 

Looks like he was wounded during the initial assault on Iwo, as part of his collection of Purple Hearts.

 

Official discharge date was 11/9/45.  

 

He died on 4/5/87, at the age of 63, and is interred at Chapel Hill Memorial Park in Largo, Florida (mausoleum location C-82).

There are only 14 Muster Roll entries for him btw.


I’ve used the Ancestry.com USMC muster rolls quite a bit. 14 entries is a pretty good result. I’ve had several guys that were in for 3-4 years and only turned up 3 or 4 entries.

There are some ways to broaden your searches, that you may want to look into.  I’ve built pretty much only USMC service histories for 10+ years, and do not think I have ever encountered that.
