When the Empire of Japan takes the island of Guadalcanal in the Pacific, they begin construction of an airfield. This airfield would be a danger to nearby Allied shipping if completed, and so the US 1st Marine Division, "The Old Breed", is rushed to the island to take control of it, beginning a long and gruelling campaign for the island. This video looks at how the 1st Marine Division was trained and rushed to Guadalcanal.

My Mom was in love with a SeaBee, but he was killed in the South Pacific. Then she met my Dad in a dance hall. She always told my two sisters, "Never marry someone you meet in a dance hall."
