 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
In late January 1945, the 24th Marines embarked and sailed for the Japanese stronghold, landing on 19 February, with other 4th Marine Division units. From the very beginning of the operation the 24th Marines remained locked in battle, often in hand-to-hand combat. The last enemy pocket of resistance was finally crushed on 16 March. The regiment was relieved two days later and immediately boarded naval vessels and returned to Hawaii. The regiment suffered 652 killed and 1053 wounded.

Private Melvin Solomon ADALMAN was a Basic Rifleman (521) who joined B/1/24 from the 24th Replacement Draft on 27 February, 1945.
