We struck at Guadalcanal to halt the
advance of the Japanese. We did not know how strong he was, nor did we know
his plans. We knew only that he was moving down the island chain and that he
had to be stopped.
We were as well trained and as well
armed as time and our peacetime experience allowed us to be. We needed
combat to tell us how effective our training, our doctrines, and our weapons
We tested them against the enemy, and
we found that they worked. From that moment in 1942, the tide turned, and
the Japanese never again advanced.
