This book is dedicated to all the Marines and contractors who stayed on Wake Island and defended it against the invasion. Those who paid the ultimate sacrifice are to be especially honored. Thank you all and thank those during the whole Pacific Campaigns who won the war for us.
I joined the Marine Corps in the early 50s because of their dedication to duty and honor.
Thank you all. “Mac”
