Yes, but what year, theater, and campaign as these variables change the TO&E.
It's a sick, sick world. I'm a happy man.

I had no idea that there was a wide variation. Say '45, Pacific, Iwo. This should include most lessons learned.

The different theaters required different equipment and new equipment was added as it became available so the TO&E was always evolving.
Until mid '43 the Marine Div TO&E closely resembled an Army Division.

What the hell is TO&E?
"GARRY OWEN"-Traditional war-cry of the US 7th Cavalry.
"CURRAHEE"-War-cry of the US 506th PIR.
"Everybody thinks that they are going to get the chance to punch some Nazi in the face at Normandy-and those days are over, they are long gone"-Lt Chris Burnett

Well, if no one else knows.....I'm not sure, but something like Transport, ordanance, and equipment? I know how it's used in context, but haven't gotten an exact definition.
