  1. I remember the day when John F Prince (USMC) was posted as KIA in the Long Island Press, our local newspaper. What I did not know was that he was classified as missing and never received a proper burial. Thank you for the update some 70 years later.

    1. Hi Don – I’m sorry, but I haven’t located a picture of Gunnery Sergeant McNair yet. If and when I do, I’ll be sure to send along a copy.
      If you like, I can help you get his service record from the National Archives – that should include at least one photograph.


  2. My father was USMC and served on Tarawa, Guadalcanal, and Saipan, where he was wounded. I have scanned and posted several photographs of the 1st Battallion, 6th Marines from my father’s collection on a site: that is hosted by Mr. Jim Hildebrand. I don’t know anyone who knows more about Tarawa than Mr. Hildebrand. He was a wealth of knowledge for me about my father’s role. Although he was very proud of his accomplishments during his service, many Marines didn’t say much about what they experienced once they returned. The photographs and his service medals were his legacies.

  3. How can I request info and picture of Robert Calvin Smith from your foundation. I am inquiring for his neice who has no computer skills. He was recently discovered and is (I think) on his way to Knoxville, tn (his home). I have very little info but did find him in your info. Please let me know what I can do for this lady and her family.

  4. Do you have a picture of CPL Jack B Sniff. He was my great uncle .

    1. Hi Karen,

      You can find a photo of Cpl. Sniff, as well as a short obituary, on his memorial.

      The “S” surname page is the last one I have to finish up – working on it now. Once it’s complete, Cpl. Sniff’s picture will be there, too.


  5. I am looking for ANYONE who knew or served under gunnery
