Rank: 

Name: Fred Dailey Utterback

Address in 1945:

Dranesville, Virginia

 

 
Research Info Received:  I received a letter from Alice Utterback, Fred's wife.  She states that Fred was in the 6th Marines 6th Amphibious Co..  He served from 9 Nov 1943 to 14 Feb 1946.  On Easter Morning in 1945, Fred landed in the first wave in the battle for Okinawa.  Fred was also present at the surrender of Japanese forces in China.  This took place on 25 Oct 1945 near Tsingtao, China.  Alice believes that the flag was probably signed at the surrender ceremony as only a few Marines from Fred's company were dispatched to China.
