    Seeking records of 8th Marine Ammunition Company

    Julian Rosemond Newbie

      I am looking for any still photos, links to videos, if any, and any other information on the 8th Marine Ammunition Company and the 36th Marine Depot Companies who landed on Iwo Jima D-Day, 19 February 1945.  These African American USMC Companies served as part of the shore party of the V Amphibious Corps. There were a total of 4 Black USMC companies assigned to the V Corps shore party, 8th Field Depot. Which this included;  the 33rd and 34th Depot Companies, in  addition to the 8th Ammunition Company and 36th Depot Company.   The latter which had elements which landed on D-Day 19 Feb 1945 as part of the initial Assault Force .
