The equipment on these troops is not even close to USMC troops from WWII.
None of the men were wearing a bandoleer of ammo around the shoulder.
In the real monument the weapons and gear were exactly as in the photo.
I think the worst part is the helmets, they sit high up on their heads.
Still, when placed with 1/72nd scale figures, the effect is pretty good.
