World War 2 - United States Navy at War


Part 2 - BY DATE, 1941-March 1942

One of the last Marine Corps invasions of World War 2, and possibly the worst - Iwo Jima, February 19, 1945 (NA, click to enlarge) return to US Navy Casualties, WW2
 or to World War 2

This incomplete list of Marine Corps casualties by Date and Ship/Unit (where known) from December 1941 to March 1942 is a summary of the names in:

The aim it to ensure that every casualty is listed, no matter what the source - in this case, the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC or bm), Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA or va), Arlington National Cemetery (ANC or ac), US Navy Memorial (NM or nm) and Pearl Harbor Casualties (PH or ph). This has been supplemented by the USMC Casualty Cards (MC or mc) for the letter A.

The ABMC entries have been added without dates. Note: some of the ABMC dates assigned to those missing in action (MIA) are later than their actual or assumed death death, and include entries up to 1946.

The role of the Marine Corps is widely known, but frequent excerpts, in italics, from the official "Chronology of the United States Marine Corps 1935-1946" (mh) by Carolyn A Tyson have still been added. These provide a fuller background to the casualties suffered. The emphasis is obviously on the Pacific Theatre, and to set the scene leading up to Pearl Harbor, Marine Corps dispositions in the Pacific are summarised for 1941.
