Class B Review[edit]

I've checked and this article has no inline citation and lacks enough referable material I've added {{Fact}} to where I think you need to add citations and I would think you can get most of this off the 1st Marine Division's website. To upgrade this further you need to get some more sources. Tirronan 21:15, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Korean War Postscript[edit]

Fifty-seven years after the Korean War, remains of two of the "Punchbowl unknowns" were identified-both from the 1st Marine Division: - *one was Pfc. Donald Morris Walker of Support Company/1st Service Battalion/1st Marine Division who was KIA Dec 7, 1950. See [[1]] {August 2007} - *the other was Pfc. Carl West of Weapons Company/1st Battalion/7th Regiment/1st Marine Division who was KIA Dec 10, 1950. See [[2]] {October 2007}

Citation tags[edit]

I note that there are a couple of citation needed tags on this article, which will cause problems when it is reviewed for GA status. Might I politely suggest that these are addressed. Jezhotwells (talk) 00:04, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:1st Marine Division (United States)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
I think the article is very good and well written but I just noticed a couple things.
  1. I would like to see citations for the 2nd paragraph where it states it is "the oldest...
  2. I think the table with the unit awards should have all the data filled in or should have emdashes.--Kumioko (talk) 01:53, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Comments

  • Okinawa: The 1st Marine Division did not fight on Sugarloaf Hill. That was the 6th Division. (The 1st Division did capture Shuri Castle however.) Also, this paragraph has no references.
  • Korea: First and last paragraphs missing references. Also, by convention, "Eighth Army" should be spelt out.
  • Vietnam: There's a citation missing tag here. Also, it is too short and requires expansion. There is no reason why Vietnam should not be as long as Korea. There were many claims that soldiers committed atrocities in the Vietnam war. The "Winter Soldier" movie is a possible source.
  • Gulf War. This is also a bit short.
  • Iraq war. Another citation required tag here.

Been a month since the last comment - what's the status on this review? Wizardman 15:36, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

  • None of the issues have been resolved, so failing it now. Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:38, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Operation Taylor Common[edit]

Why would we want to merge this article into 1st MarDiv? It's a standalone article only tangentially related to 1st MarDiv? Palm_Dogg (talk) 18:31, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

needs to be updated[edit]
