Thanks Roy. Actually, I have seen this map before, but it doesn't show details about landings as maps have for other beaches. Also, my dad was aboard the J. FRANKLIN BELL (Task Force 53, Transport Group 4, Trans Div 6) along with the HARRIS, ORMSBY, FELAND & BELLATRIX, though these ships are not shown in the staging area because MAP 1 is for the first day of the invasion.

        Certainly not at Tarawa. Your dad's unit was at Okinawa however. Only the 10th Marines artillery participated in the Battle at Tarawa.
