The intertwined real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines Robert Leckie, Eugene Sledge and John Basilone across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II, in an infantry division nicknamed "The Old Breed" for its position as the oldest and largest active duty division of the U.S. Marine Corps. With the support of their fellow Marines and comrades in the Navy, Air Force and Army, the 1st Marine Division was at the forefront of many of hardest-fought campaigns of the Pacific War.. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.

The Title

It Can Not be Inherited
Nor Can it Ever be Purchased
You or No One Alive
can Buy It for Any Price
It is Impossible to Rent
and It Can Not be Lent
You Alone and Our Own
have Earned It
with Your Sweat, Blood and Lives.
You Own It Forever
The Title
"United States Marine"
In Honor of Our Fallen
and Disabled Brothers

George L. Scott, Jr.

Copyright 1990

"The Title" was written with respect for all Good Marine. It acknowledges those Marines that are our Fallen and Disabled Brothers. At the time of it's writing, a particular Fallen Brother came to mind. This Marine (S/Sgt. RP Haskell), in my heart, is the epitome of what the United States Marine Corps produces. I was told that S/Sgt. Haskell died in Vietnam 1966-67. However, since "The Title" was written, I stand corrected. Capt. R.P. Haskell, USMC, Ret., is living with his family on the east coast after his 34 year career. S/Sgt . R.P. Haskell, for a time, was my Senior D.I., Plt. 172, 1st BN., Parris Island, formed Friday 13Sep63. Rank we find is irrelevant when we respect and admire any Outstanding Marine. Semper Fidelis.
