Rod – thanks man, and I’ll be home tomorrow.

Darryl – negative, Garands didn’t show up on the Canal until November when the Army replaced 1st MarDiv.

Most Marine units even fought their way up the Solomons with Springfields.  I think it wasn’t until Cape Gloucester and Tarawa (1943) before the Garand had fully replaced the Springfield in frontline combat units.

V/R,

Jack
