This site is dedicated to the brave warriors of Marine Fighter Squadron 112 who served with honor and distinction at Guadalcanal during World War II.

As the march of time thins the ranks of the Wolf Pack, it is important that the legacy be preserved. This site has been created and established by the wives, sons, daughters, and grandchildren of the Wolf Pack so that their memory will endure. This site is for anyone interested in the story of VMF-112 during its three tours of combat at Guadalcanal. Stories, biographies, news clippings, mementos, memoirs, photos and documents, etc are enclosed. We actively solicit additional material of that nature in order to more fully preserve the history of a determined group of young men who answered their country's call in order to champion peace and democracy.

"Now this is the Law of the Jungle- 
as told and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk the Law runneth forward and back - For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack."
.... Rudyard Kipling, Second Jungle Book
