Gunny;
I have had the honor of serving with the 2nd Marine Division in Iraq. My Army unit has been given the 2nd MARDIV patch as a combat patch. I am interested in the history behind it. What does the tourch signify? There are 5 stars on all the Marine patches I ahve seen, what are they for?

Thanks for your time and service.
