FMF Enlisted PQS Guide

Section 102

USMC History, Ranks, and Courtesies

slide2

This PowerPoint presentation is a brief synopsis of Section 102 of the Enlisted FMF PQS study manual. It is designed to either be presented as a class to a battalion aid station while the students read along in their books or to be used by a single person studying for their test or board, with the book nearby to bounce between the book and the slideshow.

It is not meant to replace the actual material in your bookand it certainly does not cover all of the material inside of the references listed in the book. It is a pretty badass presentation, but it will also never be an acceptable substitute for the weeks of study time recommended prior to taking the exam or oral boards.

Good luck!

102.1: Significant Events

1900 – The Chinese Boxers rebel. Marines in Asia defend the American embassy and Embassy Row in Peking until reinforcements arrive. This is often referred to as the first “Non-Combatant Evacuation Operation,” or NEO.

One of the notable Marines present during the Boxer Rebellion was Sergeant Major Dan Daly, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions that day.

102.1: Significant Events

1917 – Marines land in France in support of World War I. They participate in eight distinct operations, including the Battle of Belleu Wood, and were awarded numerous awards, including the French Fourragere, still worn by members of the 5th and 6th Regiments. So fierce was the fighting that Marines were ranked at the top of the fighting ability list by German intelligence, earning them the nickname “Devil Dogs”

1933 – Marine Corps gets reorganized into the Fleet Marine Force, formally establishing the “command and administrative” relations between the fleet and the Corps. The Marine Corps Equipment Board also gets established at Quantico, VA and Marines begin to devote long hours to testing and developing materials for landing operations and expeditionary service.

102.2: Major Conflicts

Belleau Wood – One of the greatest battles in Marine history was fought at Belleau Wood, France. Until the Marines arrived, the Germans were pushing the French back and threatening Paris. Marines repelled the Germans so decidedly that they got ranked as “Storm Troops,” the highest rating on the German enemy fighting scale. The Germans soldiers also referred to the Marines as “Teufelhunden,” German for “Devil Dogs,” a nickname in which Marines share pride.

Among the warriors at Belleu Wood was then Gunnery Sergeant Dan Daly who motivated his men by yelling at them, “Come on you sons of bitches!, Do you want to live forever?” Gunnery Sergeant Daly would receive the Navy Cross for his leadership and combat action at Belleau Wood.

102.2: Major Conflicts

Guadalcanal– On 07 Aug 1942, the 1st Marine Division landed on Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, the first US land offensive of World War II, and the first test of the new amphibious doctrine (in development at Quantico since 1933). Taking the islands gave the US an airbase from which to launch bombers and further invade Japanese lands.

Tarawa– After Guadalcanal, the Gilbert islands (Tarawa and Betio) were the next goal. The Japanese commander had boasted that the islands were so fortified it would take 1 million Americans 100 years to capture. Marines took the island in 76 hours. An error by the US was landing during low tide: landing craft caught the reefs, forcing Americans to swim ashore during heavy fire, causing many to drown or be mowed down by Japanese machine guns

102.2: Major Conflicts

Mariana Islands– The Mariana Islands of Saipan, Guam, and Tinian were invaded to provide forward airfields and naval bases for the Air Force and Navy. During June and July of 1943, Lt. General Holland Smith commanded 136,000 soldiers and Marines, the greatest number under Marine command in history.

Iwo Jima– The largest and bloodiest battle in Marine Corps history began on 19 Feb 1943, with 23,300 casualties. Capturing Iwo Jima greatly increased air support and bombing capabilities over Japan. Admiral Nimitz said of the battle, “Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon value was a common virtue.”

Among the warriors at Iwo Jima were Pharmacist’s Mate 2nd Class John Bradley, Navy Cross recipient, and CPL Ira H. Hayes, both of whom were involved in the 2nd flag raisingatop Mt. Suribachi.

102.2: Major Conflicts

Chosin Reservoir– In November of 1950, Americans were routing the North Koreans, pushing their forces up to the border with China. However, American forces drew too close to the Chinese border, causing the Chinese to join the battle. Surprised by the Chinese and cut off from the main allied forces, Marines were outnumbered and surrounded by ten Red Army divisions. Refusing to surrender, Marines smashed through the Chinese Army, destroying 7 of their 10 divisions as they retreated from the Chosin Reservoir. The major significance of the battle was Marines brought out all usable equipment and properly evacuated casualties.

Among the memorable men leading the fight in Korea was then Colonel Lewis “Chesty” Puller

Hue City– During the Tet holiday in January of 1968, Communist forces launched a surprise offensive by infiltrating a division-sized unit into Hue City. Marines fought in urban terrain for the first time since the Korean War and were forced to use small arms to minimize civilian casualties. The city was secured on 29 February, 1968

General Archibald Henderson– “The Grand Old Man” of the Marine Corps, Brevet Brigadier General Henderson became Commandant in 1820 and held his command for 39 years until his death in 1859. General Henderson served aboard the USS Constitution during the War of 1812, led the Corps through the Indian Wars, the War with Mexico, the Opening of China, and the disorders in Central America. He is also credited with thwarting President Andrew Jackson’s attempts to merge the Marine Corps with the US Army. He introduced higher standards of personal appearance, training, discipline, and strived to have the Marines known as a professional military force capable of more than sea and guard duties.

102.3: Noteworthy Marines

Sergeant Major John Quick– The Sergeant Major is remembered for his Medal of Honor winning performance at Cuzco Wells in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. While fighting the Spanish, his platoon signaled for the US Navy ships to bombard the enemy with naval gunfire. A mistake in the message gave the coordinates of the Marines instead of the Spanish resulting in the Marines receiving incoming fire from both the Spanish troops and US Navy ships. Aware of the certain destruction of his platoon unless he acted quickly, Sergeant Quick exposed himself to both Spanish and US gunfire and semaphored for an emergency lift of the US naval gunfire.

The landing at Guantanamo Bay demonstrated the usefulness of Marines as assault troops. When employed with the fleet, Marines gave added strength for the capture and defense of advanced bases becoming a primary mission of the Marine Corps

Chesty Puller quotes

When an Army captain asked him for the direction of the line of retreat, Col Puller called his Tank Commander, gave them the Army position, and ordered: "If they start to pull back from that line, even one foot, I want you to open fire on them." Turning to the captain, he replied "Does that answer your question? We're here to fight." (While fighting in Inchon, North Korea)

"The mail service has been excellent out here, and in my opinion this is all that the Air Force has accomplished during the war.“ (In letter to wife from Korea)

Puller ordered Marines to gather all abandoned Army equipment of the retreating soldiers and put it to good use. He later told an Army colonel who demanded return of the equipment: "It all has USMC markings on it now and if you want it back, kick my ass." The equipment remained in possession of the Marines.

"All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us...they can't get away this time“ (While fighting at Chosin Reservoir)

"They are a damn sight better than the U.S. Army, at least we know that they will be there in the morning.“ (When asked by an embedded journalist how it felt to be surrounded by 22 enemy divisions)

“We’re surrounded? Good! That means we can fire in any direction! Those sons of bitches won’t get away this time!” (While fighting his way out of the Chosin Reservoir)

Corporal Ira Hayes – Corporal Hayes, a Pima Indian, was one of the Marines immortalized in the now famous 2nd flag raising atop Mount Suribachi shortly after the Marines secured Iwo Jima. After the war, Corporal Hayes became instantly famous because of the photograph and sank into alcoholism, most likely because of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Amassing over fifty alcohol related arrests, Corporal Hayes was found dead from exposure after spending the night outdoors after a drinking binge.

Private Opha Mae Johnson– Private Johnson became the Marine Corps first enlisted woman on 13 August 1918. Her enlistment was a reflection of the dramatic changes in the status of women brought about by the entry of the United States into World War I
