PostSubject: 1st Provisional Marine Brigade   Fri Dec 31, 2010 11:12 pm

The 1st Provisional Marine Brigade, was a Marine infantry brigade of the United States Marine Corps that existed periodically in World War II and in the Korean War. It was an ad hoc unit formed for specific operations and therefore not considered a "permanent" USMC unit.

The brigade saw five brief activations for service over a 40-year span. First created for duty in Cuba following a 1912 revolution, the brigade was not activated again until 1941 when it was hastily constructed from the 6th Marines to garrison Iceland after occupation of that country by British troops during World War II. It saw service once more in the war during the Battle of Guam in the Pacific War, conducting an amphibious landing on that island's southern sector and subduing resistance from troops of the Empire of Japan. It was activated once more in a brief organizational shift post-war.

The brigade's best known duty came in 1950 when it was again hastily assembled, this time for service in the Korean War. The brigade participated in a counterattack at Masan before being called to reinforce US Army units during the Battle of Pusan Perimeter, and at the First and Second battles of Naktong Bulge along the Naktong River. Following these duties, the brigade was deactivated for the last time when it was merged with the 1st Marine Division.
