A few weeks ago I posted for the first time looking for info on my Grandfather who was a Seabee. My son was doing a project. After much research, I was able to find out with the help of others here which battles he was involved in.

Since then I have discovered that my husbands Grandfather was part of the Merrill's Mauraders. I had never before heard of them (never done WWII research before).

I am interested in seeing if anyone knew of him? or my grandfather the Seabee. Their names were Hershel Campbell and Charles Lederer.

Yes, the one for Charles is! Thank you so much.

Most of the research I have done says that the mauraders were volunteers?
