E Company Marines Remembered

The 13th Infantry Battalion was the first Marine Corps Reserve Unit from Tucson, Arizona to be activated for the Korean conflict in July of 1950.  This is a tribute to the men who returned and to remember those who didn’t.  The oral histories, poems, songs, diaries, and photos are meant to preserve their lives and the great sacrifices made by each member.
