Albertus W. Catlin, USMC
Brigadier General Albertus W. Catlin was born 1 December 1868 in Rome, New York, and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps 1 July 1892. After serving at various posts and stations in the United States and on board ships of the Navy, General Catlin saw action in the Spanish American War as commanding officer of the Marine detachment aboard the USS Maine, when the ship was destroyed in Havana Harbor in February 1898. While Serving in Cuba in 1911 he commanded a battalion of the 1st Marines at Guantanamo Bay.
He then commanded the 3rd Marines at Vera Cruze where he was awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery. General Catlin, after commanding the 3d Marines at Vera Cruz, Mexico in 1914, was issued a commendatory letter by the Secretary of the Navy for courage and skill in leading his command.
With the outbreak of World War I, General Catlin (then Lieutenant Colonel) was placed in charge of the Marine training camp at Quantico, Virginia. In October 1917, he was sent to France as Commanding Officer of the 6th Marines. From 1-6 June 1918 Colonel Catlin's 6th Marines saw action in the front line from Paris-Metz Road through Lucy le Bocage to Hill 142. On the 6th of June, with his regiment attacking Bois de Belleau, he was wounded in the chest by a sniper and evacuated to a hospital the next day. Upon returning to the United States, Colonel Catlin served at Headquarters Marine Corps and was appointed Brigadier General on 30 August 1918. Following his tour at Headquarters he was assigned to the Marine Barracks at Quantico, and in November 1918 he sailed for Haiti where he assumed command of the First Brigade of Marines until September 1919. In December 1919 Brigadier General Catlin retired form the Marine Corps and as a result of his wound was ill health until his death in Culpeper, Virginia, on 31 May 1944.
Besides our country's highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, General Catlin was awarded two Croix de Guerre, one with palms and one with gilt star for gallantry in action against the enemy at Belleau Wood. He was also made an Officer of the Legion of Honor for his service in the same sector. His citation states:
General Catlin was thrown into the thick of battle on a front then under violent enemy attack. He commanded his regiment with precision and judgment, which bore fruit in the operation up to 6 June 1918, inclusive; then in direction in Belleau Wood, where he was wounded by a bullet, which went through his shoulder and lung.
Soon after his return from France, the General summarized his experiences in a book called "With the Help of Good and a few Marines."
