Below is what I have gathered thus far and the resources you need to use are at the bottem My topic will be John Basilone. I am choosing him as my topic because his name is taught to every marine at boot camp and that is what drew me to the topic. I know he is a well decorated marine who saved a lot of people and showed great courage when it was needed. I know he took a hot machine gun with his arm and carried it while shooting to defend his position and fellow marines. I am hoping to learn more about what he did and how he was recognized for it. It describes how he joined the marines and after Pearl Harbor he was deployed to Japan and held off thousands of marines against challenging conditions. He was recognized for the those triumphs and was a poster boy for awhile until he went back to Iwo Jima. Here he showed his act of courage and bravery was not a fluke. He went into enemy territory to save his fellow marines and died there. “He remains the only enlisted marine in World War II to hold the Medal of Honor, the Navy Cross, and the Purple Heart ”(Curatola). The main things John Basilone is known for are his actions in Japan, Iwo Jima, and his significance in United States Marines history.
