Helpful Hint:

-Muster Rolls/Rosters of Recruit Training Battalions at Parris Island or San Diego do not include Recruit Platoon numbers.

-Researchers should attempt to provide the lowest unit echelon known along with the specific month and year when making request (i.e.: Company A, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines for April 1968).
