    ATS is hitting the PACIFIC beaches HARD ... in a new release cycle with products aimed at owners of ATS LEATHERNECK 1.

    Iwo Jima, 19 February 1945: The 1st battalion, 28th Marine Regt.’s mission was to slash across the small waist of the island of Iwo Jima, cutting off Mt. Suribachi to the south. The Marines had been surprised by the light resistance met on the beaches. The battalion pushed elements of 3 companies across to the far shore but had bypassed many enemy positions. The area was far from secure. This mopping up operation was loosely organized as all of the battalion’s elements had been dispersed in the dash across the ashen terrain between the two coasts. Small groups of Marines would stumble on an incredibly well camouflaged enemy position and silence it. At times, the Marines found a position only after the enemy within would lay low one of the attackers. One of these small groups of Marines was led by Cpl. Tony Stein, a former Machinist’s Mate who had fashioned a rig which allowed him to single handedly wield a machine gun salvaged from a wrecked aircraft. With his “Stinger” in hand Cpl. Stein and his colleagues went about the business of securing the area at the base of Mt. Suribachi.
