Belleau Wood - CaptO - 03-04-2011

Seems strange that the Marines, for whom the wood was renamed continue to use the original name. You will never hear a Marine speak of the Wood of the Marine Brigade or Bois de la Brigade de Marine. I suppose because Belleau Wood has a better ring to it. Humility? Probably not!
