Hi Blitzkrieg, the wings were his. One set of dress greens has the "Vth Marine Amphibious Corps" patch but I don't know if this was the last he was attached to. Regards, Jay

I haven't posted on the forums in a long while but I just received a few priceless things to add to my Uncle's grouping. My Cousin Jason (One of Cyrille's Sons) recently gave me a photo of my Uncle somewhere in the South Pacific. Not sure when it was taken or where he was. My Cousin Jill (One of Cyrille's Daughters) gave me his Bronze Star Citation for Valor.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Still  amazed by this group for a decade now and it just keeps getting better. Would like to see the USN crackerjacks when and if you are ever able.

 

Thank you for continuing to update this thread and grouping.

You could search a life time, or maybe 2 life times and never find a better grouping. Being to a Relative just makes it icing on the cake. Great grouping. Thanks for sharing. Dave

Collecting Marine Raider Groups

On the battlefield, Pfc Edward Ahrens, an Able Company BAR man, lay dying, soaked in his own blood.

 

As his company commander, Lew Walt cradled him in his arms, he surveyed the scene around them. Nearby lay a Japanese officer, a sergeant, and thirteen enlisted men, all dead. Ahrens had been shot twice in the chest and bayoneted three times. He whispered to Walt, "Captain, they tried to come over me last night, but I don't think they made it." Choking back tears, Walt replied softly, "They didn't, Eddy. They didn't."
