I think I got all those guys.  Would be glad to add any pictures or info.  You can email any info or large pictures to me.

I have been sitting on Silver Star and Navy Cross info for a long time so I wanted to get those areas populated with links for all those Marines.  Generally when someone sees that info they have more info and pass it on. 

Also you get a better idea of what happened by reading through those citations.
