  • Rating: TV-G
A jacket our contributor received as a gift has inscriptions reading: "4th Marines," "Shanghai," "China," "1937-1939" and "MWD." To whom did this particular jacket belong, and what is his legacy? Host Gwendolyn Wright travels to both coasts to investigate the story of the "China Marines," a regiment that worked to keep the peace and protect U.S. interests during the ramp up to World War II.
