In the interest of military accuracy, I believe the 5th Marines were part of the 4th Marine Brigade, not the other way around as Morris wrote of Thomason’s outfit. In the First World War, American divisions consisted of two brigades of two regiments each. The 6th Marines were the other regiment in the 4th Marine Brigade.

We hope you enjoy our work.
