twin turrets, one containing a .50-caliber machine gun and the other a .30-
caliber machine gun, was first manufactured in 1935. In December 1942, when
it was declared obsolete, there were 234 left in the Army. The M2A2 light tank
is a good example of the type of equipment available shortly after the entry of
the United States into World War II.

ARMY TROOPS IN LCP(L)’S, during an amphibious training exercise, leave
Oahu for a beach landing. After the entry of the United States into World War II
training was intensified, and specialized training in amphibious landings was
given the troops arriving in the Hawaiian Islands since most of the islands to be
taken later would have to be assaulted over open beaches. In February 1943 the
Amphibious Training Area, Waianae, Oahu, was activated for training units in
amphibious landings. LCP(L)’s had no bow ramp for disembarking troops.

began to pour into Hawaii for training and shipment to Pacific stations.
