US Marine Rocketeer Uniform 2nd Provisional Detachment WW2

Recommended Posts


Marine Rocketeer.

2nd Marine division uniform marked to C E Cox both in coat sleeve and hat. Only person I can find is Clarence E Cox of the 2nd provisional rocket detachment. I can’t seem to find him after the war? I’m pretty sure his unit was at Saipan and Okinawa (?), but only 1 campaign star.

A little bit of help with this guy would be greatly appreciated.  Would like to know about his postwar life.

Nice ribbons.

Scarce unit, only about 350 Marines served in the 6 detachments created during the war. “The Marine Buck Rogers Men”.

Muster Roll shows he was at Saipan and Tinian and at least off coast of Okinawa.
