Dorothy, Saw your posts re your husband involved in Battle of Saipan and in the Marshalls & Gilberts campaigns.If you haven't already discovered it, go to http://www.navsource.org/archives/10/03032.htmhttp://www.navsource.org/archives/10/03032.htm for a picture of U.S.S. Calvert your husband was on.You can click on the picture to enlarge, and also print it off. My father was with the 193rd Tank Bn. in mop up operations on Makin and transfered to Saipan from Makin with the 762nd Tank Bn. in mop operations on Saipan.From info I have been able to gather, the Calvert was the ship that had his outfit on board at landing on Makin. Also, try to get on interlibrary loan copies of the following if they don't have on their shelf:United States Army in World War II series, (The War in the Pacific) "Seizure Of The Gilberts & Marshalls" authored by Philip A. Crowl & Edmund G. Love.This will info on any outfit involved in Makin landing, and for Saipan: same series of books but entitled: "Campaign in the Marianas" authored by Philip A. Crowl.That one deals with the Battle of Saipan.These books often refered to as "the green books" due the green hardback binding used on same. Good Luck!
