LtCol. Tom Mulloy Trotti..WWII
Does anyone have any info. on LtCol. Tom Mulloy Trotti, 3/26 Marines, fifth division, KIA, 02/22/1945 @Iwo Jima. I would like to know something of his career before his landing on the island or any other info. that could be passed along.
I do know he served as an instructor of the Marine Paratroopers at Lakehurst, NJ, and Camp Gillespie, Calif. after he graduated in 1937 from the Citadel in Charleston, SC
His hometown is in SC, but was living in Calif. when he was sent to Iwo Jima.
Anything you can pass on would be "greatly appreciated"!
