Map of Majuro Atoll

Majuro Atoll Majuro Atoll is located approximately 225 nautical miles southeast of Kwajalein, between the Japanese-held atolls of Mille and Maloelap.  The atoll consists of 64 islands and was only occupied by six Japanese when it was seized by the Reconnaissance Company of the 5th Amphibious Corps on January 31, 1945.  Following its capture, an airstrip for fighters and dive-bombers was constructed on Dalap Island, located on the eastern tip of the atoll.  This airstrip was also used by VMB-613 for harassing strikes against the Japanese garrison on Mille Atoll.
