Merrill's Marauders

Transcript: Yea buddy Bio Read all about it Ready or not When their mission was completed, all surviving Merrill's Marauders had to be evacuated to hospitals to be treated for everything from exhaustion and various tropical diseases to malnutrition or A.O.E. ("Accumulation of Everything"). They were awarded the Distinguished Unit Citation in July 1944, which was re-designated the Presidential Unit Citation in 1966. Every member of the commando force also received the Bronze Star, a very rare distinction for an entire unit. Merrill remained in the Far East and was made an aide to General Stillwell. Within the military, a type of "Help Wanted" ad was put up with the president's authority, an appeal for applicants to participate in a "dangerous and hazardous mission." About 3,000 soldiers volunteered from stateside units to create what was officially called the 5307th Composite Unit, code named "Galahad." It would go into history as Merrill's Marauders, after Brig. Gen. Frank Merrill, their commander. The patch Game plan Merrill's Marauders By Deven Carpenter General Merrill trained his men in the art of guerrilla warfare in the jungles of India, for secrecy's sake. The commando force was formed into six combat units--Red, White, Blue, Green, Orange, and Khaki--with 400 men in each (the remaining 600 men or so were part of a rear-echelon headquarters that remained in India to coordinate the air-drops of equipment to the men in the field). Frank Dow Merrill was a grad from from west point . He graduated in the class of 1929. Merrill had a degree in engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Merrill was awarded the purple heart and other medals. Merrill Died on the year of 1955. The Marauders' mission began with a 1,000-mile walk through dense jungle, without artillery support, into Burma. On February 24, 1944, they began their Burmese campaign, which, when done, consisted of five major and 30 minor engagements with a far more numerous Japanese enemy. They had to carry their supplies on their backs and on pack mules, and were resupplied only with airdrops in the middle of the jungle. Merrill's Marauders succeeded in maneuvering behind Japanese forces to cause the disruptions necessary to throw the enemy into confusion. They were so successful, the Marauders managed even to capture the Myitkyina Airfield in northern Burma. In August 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill agreed to create an American ground unit whose sole purpose would be to engage in a "long-range penetration mission" in Japanese-occupied Burma. This mission would consist of cutting Japanese communications and supply lines and otherwise throwing the enemy's positions into chaos. It was hoped that this commando force could thus prepare the way for Gen. Joseph Stillwell's Chinese American Force to reopen the Burma Road, which was closed in April 1942 by the Japanese invaders, and once again allow supplies and war material into China through this route THE PATCH" SYMBOLISM OF THE DESIGN The Colors: Blue, White, Red & Green represent 4 of the 6 Marauders combat teams. * The Sun: From the Chinese National Flag for the unit's close cooperation with Chinese forces in Burma. * The Star: Represents the "Star of Burma" for the Marauders area of operations. * The Lightning Bolt: Stands for the speed and force that the Marauders struck the enemy.

Transcript: Animagus Wormtail ORDER OF THE PHOENIX Padfoot Sirius Black III, also known by his nickname Padfoot, was a pure-blood wizard. Sirius attented to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1971 to 1978 and was the first in his family to ever be sorted into Gryffindor instead of Slytherin. There he met James, Remus and Peter and they became best friends. Later on, Sirius became the godfather of Harry Potter and was framed for the murder of 12 muggles and for breatraying James and Lily. Sirius was sent to Azkaban for twelve years, eventually becoming the only known person to escape the prison unassisted, by transforming into his Animagus form of a massive black dog. Sirius exposed Pettigrew's treachery to his old friend Remus and his godson, Harry. After Lord Voldemort returned in 1995, Sirius rejoined the Order of the Phoenix. He was killed by his cousin Bellatrix Lestrange during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, and subsequently cleared of all charges by the Ministry of Magic. James Potter, also known as Prongs, was a pure-blood wizard. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1971 to 1978, and was sorted into Gryffindor house. James became best friends with Sirius, Remus and Peter, and they created the Marauders Map. James was also a bully and bullied Severus Snape because he disliked him and his behavior, also because Snape was obviously in love with Lily and spent most of his time with her from childhood. Sometimes, James bullied Snape solely for the purpose of entertaining Sirius. James started dating Lily in his seventh year at Hogwarts, they later got married and had a son named Harry Potter. James and Lily were members of the Order of the Phoenix and fought in the first Wizarding War. Later, James was murdered by Voldemort in 1981, along with his wife, while trying to protect their son. The Marauders (James, Sirius, Remus and Peter) were Animagi.
