Here one i kept from my WW II hearts

KIA Yellow Beach Makin Atoll Nov 16 1943

165th Regt landing crafts became stuck on Reef AROUND YELLOW BEACH BECAUSE OF LOW TIDE

the assault waves had to wade ashore 250 yards

Edward was killed when he stepped off landing craft into shell crater/ deep water and drowned under weight of his equipment

27th Div lost 58 KIAs taking Makin
