Hi All. Congratulations Clay. I found this footage....General David M. Shoup (recalled to active duty for the occasion) visits Betio Island (Tarawa) with an American contingent to dedicate a memorial to the Second Division Marines who fought and died on the island. Shoup and other recollect the battle as they tour the island. Original combat films incorporated with contemporary footage.
