Re: PFC Jorge I. Rodriguez, 3/2 Marine Regt., Betio, Tarawa, 11/20/1943

Superb work Eduardo, an excellent representation of a Tarawa Marine. 3/2 or 3rd Battalion Second Marines (in Marine Corps parlance the term Marines when used in a unit designation always means a regiment) is still known as the "Betio Bastards". Betio being the actual island assaulted in Tarawa atoll.

IMHO, you didn't just capture the details, you also captured the spirit, a much harder thing to accomplish. Again, simply outstanding.
