National World War II Merrill’s Marauders Day

Saturday, Aug 10, 2019 (11 AM to 3 PM)

This unnamed provisional unit of U.S. Army volunteers were the first American ground troops to fight the Japanese in Asia. The 75th Anniversary of the disbanding of"Merrill’s Marauders" will be commemorated with special exhibits from Ft. Gordon Signal Corps and Jonnie Classen.

Today, members of the 75th Ranger Regiment wear the Marauder patch as their crest. Merrill’s Marauders were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation, and have the extremely rare distinction of every member of the unit receiving the Bronze Star Medal. There were six Distinguished Service Crosses, four Legions of Merit and 44 Silver Star Medals awarded. Twenty-five Merrill’s Marauders have been inducted into the Army Ranger Hall of Fame.
