My dad also did speak of working with Col. David M. Shoup. HE pointed him out and indicated some notes in the book that has the history of the 2nd Marine Division. My dad is in one of the pictures where they are doing a flag raising.
The are some picture of guys eating in a tent and my dad footnoted names with arrows and wrote if they were KIA or WIA. I also have a Japanese Flag but not sure if it was from Tarawa or Saipan. Everyone he was associated with signed the flag with their name and hometown. Here are the names on the flag. I can also send a picture of the flag if I can figure out how to do it.
