      These men appear to be servicemen of the WW2 era, most probably stationed in the Pacific. Nice camaraderie photo

      some info on the patch:
      USMC III Amphibious Corps

      Thank you TallCakes and Newfld.
      I wonder would there be anywhere I could post this so someone may recognize their loved one?
      There is an important story behind these faces for sure.

      Might try FB as I think there are some groups for finding who they are.....I think, or at the very least point you in a direction

      Definitely WW2 US Marines in the photo and I would guess Pacific or Florida.
