Kit# 9932 - US Navy Shore Patrol WWII
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9932 - US Navy Shore Patrol, WWII. Often overlooked as participants in the American war effort were the members of the Navy Shore Patrol. The Shore Patrol stood guard over all American Naval installations, from the great ports in the United States and Europe, to the smallest island in the Pacific. Their greatest responsibility was preventing any form of sabotage to dock facilities and war materials. However they performed many other duties. On many Pacific Islands the S.P. formed the Front Line Garrison. The S.P. was also responsible, on a limited scale, for counter espionage activities. In all the sizable seaborne invasions, from the numerous Pacific landings, the landings in North Africa, Italy and Normandy, the U.S. Navy Shore Patrol was among the first ashore.
