I believe that a great many people don't realize that the Marines were posted in China after WW II. They were tasked with the responsibility of making sure that when the Japanese surrendered their instruments of war they didn't fall into the hands of the Communists led by Mao Zedong. They also were supposed to protect the remaining Japanese from harm that might befall them from the Chinese. They really didn't like the last part at all.
