The text of this poster reads: "When Saipan and Tinian were needed as bases for the superfort attacks on Japan, the veteran Second and Fourth Marine Divisions stormed Saipan's beaches on June 14,1944. With only ten days' rest after the fall of Saipan, the dauntless Marines crossed to Tinian to complete the triumph!".
