Members of the 2nd Marine Division made the first assault beachhead landing against a heavily defended, and almost fanatical enemy resistance. In 76 hours of furious battle the island was secured, and except for a handful of Korean prisoners, the entire garrison was wiped out. The battle was bitter, the costs were high; but the lessons learned were vital to the success of our future campaigns in the Pacific."
