Jacob W Hoechst served in WW2 as an honored Marine. He was in HQ Company 9th Regiment 3rd Marine Division. He fought in several battles including the Bougainville campaign of the Solomon Islands in the latter part of 1943.
The 9th Marines were part of the reserve forces for the Battle of Iwo Jima and were committed to the action five days after D-Day. After the island was secured, the unit was sent back to Guam where they underwent training for a possible invasion of the Japanese mainland. The invasion never occurred since hostilities between Japan and the United States came to an end. The 9th Marines were then sent to Camp Pendelton where, in December 1945, it was once again disbanded. Jake was released from his service just prior, in October 1945.
