My great uncle served in the Merril's Marauders and was KIA in Burma. Unfortunately I don't have much info about his service.
I checked out this website, MERRILL'S MARAUDERS "PASS IN REVIEW" and found him listed there...
"Coon, Barlow G. - 32138146 - Pvt. - 5307th - K.I.A. May 18, 1944
(Gen. Merrill's Orderly, Myitkyina)"
Dumb question, does this mean he was Merrill's personal orderly or just an orderly for the group? lol
I'm taking a shot in the dark to see if anyone has any interesting information or some pictures of Merril's Marauders. I'd love to be able to spot him in a pic.
