Photos 1st Marine Provisional Detachment
My Grandfather Merle Nelson was a Marine from 1943 to 1946. After he passed away we found some pictures from his time in WWII. He was in the 1st Marine Provisional Detachmen (PMD). They shiped and built camps for the men overseas. He was in Hawaii and the South Pacific. Unforunatly there were no names on these pictures so I have no idea who these men are. I have put them on a web page in hopes that someone might find a family member and help identify them. anyone with family from the PMD please check my page. I would love to get copies of the pictures to the loved ones of these men.
