Belleau Wood
#6

As a point of historical interest, I noticed that there were memorials to the Second Division at Belleau Wood. Perhaps most people wouldn't have noticed, but as the Second Marine Division was not formed until 1941, it may have confusion to some. During WWI, the Fifth and Sixth Marine Regiments were combined to form the 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade. That brigade was in turn attached to the Army's Sencond Infantry Division. This is the reason that, to this day, the emblem of the 6th Marines is the 2nd Divisions' Indian Head.
