Letter of Commendation

The Commander in Chief Pacific and U.S. Pacific Fleet takes pleasure in commending LIEUTENANT COMMANDER ROBERT A. MARSHALL UNITED STATES COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY for service set forth in the following CITATION:
"For meritorious conduct in the performance of his duties while attached to the U.S.S. OCEANOGRAPHER from December 1943 to February 1944. During this period, he conducted a survey of the inner-harbor and approaches to Cape Torokina, Bougainville, British Solomon Islands. By his outstanding skill and devotion to duty in planning, he prepared a navigation chart and provided vitally important navigational information. Despite hazardous and difficult operating conditions, he prepared charts of the Cape Torokina area, thereby contributing materially to the success of the offensive operations of our forces in that area. His performance of duty was outstanding and his conduct was at all times in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service."
