'By their victory, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country with only history will be able to value full. Among the Americans who serves on iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.'


— Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, US Navy, on the Marines after the battle of Iwo Jima

War Dogs
The US Marine Corps used war dogs in the Pacific theatre where they excelled as messengers and at alerting troops to Japanese ambushes. A dog and its handler were often attached to reconnaissance patrols where the dog’s keen sense of hearing and powerful nose would detect trouble well ahead of their human companions.

Teams placed from Ambush must be more than 10”/25cm from all Dog Handler teams (instead of the normal 8”/20cm for Recce teams, see page 193 of the rulebook). The Dog Handler teams do not have to be in Line of Sight.
