First Marine Division was founded aboard USS TEXAS (BB 35)
when a directive was read on the ship's
fantail redesignating 1st Marine Brigade on
1 February 1941
while the battleship was flagship for
Caribbean amphibious exercises.

Renowned for valor in battle from its legendary action at Guadalcanal
through the arduous Pacific campaigns of World War II,
the First Marine Division established a tradition of courage and tenacity
sustained through combat in Korea, Vietnam and subsequent conflicts.
