WW2 - Pacific War

Here are some photos my dad left me. He was a USMC combat correspondent who wrote the captions you can't see on these photos which depict action on Okinawa, Saipan, other places. I have a couple hundred of these most of which have not been scanned in yet. Amazing, historical stuff here! Let me know what you think.
