I have numerous books on D-Day which say US Marines did not fight there. All 4 Marine divisions were active in the Pacific at that

6821 Americans died, but none of them were soldiers. Soldiers belong to the Army, and it was the US Marines who took Iwo Jima. So all the casualties were Marines, or medics serving with the Marines, who are US Navy Corpsmen. There were also 19,217 US wounded.
