Hi Rona! Thank you for writing about this and for doing an AMA! I am a Marine veteran from the early 90's and I can recall a statistic about my particular time in service. Using round numbers, for every 10 basic infantry Marines, it took about 50 other Marines to support them. Everything from pay, supply, food, weapons and ammo, communication gear, etc. But I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. My question is this - how did you determine what era you wanted to research and write about? Why WWII versus say, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, etc? Thank you!
