THE MONTFORD POINT MARINES

Compiled by Bennie J. McRae, Jr.


Sergeant Major Alford L. McMichael

14TH SERGEANT MAJOR OF THE MARINE CORPS


"For three weeks straight, Black Marines in my company the 34th Marine Depot, and in my buddy, Gunnery Sgt. Kermit White’s Company, the 36th Marine Depot ... as well as the 8th Ammunition Company and the 16th Marines worked and fought. The Japanese were trying hard to knock out the 8th Ammo Company, because if they could blow up the Ammunition Dump, Marines would, in fairly short order, run out of Ammunition. Luckily there was never a direct hit on the 8th Ammo’s position." Excerpt from article "MONTFORD POINT MARINES ON IWO JIMA" by Jim Rundles - Jackson, Mississippi
