Re: How do I find out what platoon my grandfather faught with?
Heather - Here's the order for Army units and I think the Marines are close to this order as well: ( largest to smallest)

Division (15,000 approx.)
Battallion ( 4 companies)usually 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Bat.
Company ( 160-220 men approx.)
Platoon ( 35-50 men)
Squad( 10-15 men)
The platoon may be more difficult to establish than the larger groups.
