    World War II veterans with the 4th Marine Division Association assembled for a deactivation ceremony at Liversedge Field aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune as part of their final muster Aug. 6. Maj. Gen. Paul W. Brier, 4th Marine Division commanding general, was the guest of honor. The Marines and sailors of 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment and the 2nd Marine Division Band were the ceremonial units rendering honors to the association on the parade deck. Mr. Elmer Dapron, the association's national president, presided over the retiring of the unit's colors.

    The 4th Marine Division, also known as the "Fighting Fourth," was formally activated on Aug. 14, 1943, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. These men fought valiantly throughout the Pacific during WWII. Within 13 months, these men fought in four major amphibious assaults, in the battles of Kwajalein (Roi-Namur), Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima, and suffered more than 17,000 casualties. The unit was awarded two Presidential Unit Citations, the highest military unit award, and a Navy Unit Commendation.
