Inspired by the Quebec Conference and keeping in mind General Joseph Stilwell's requests for American Infantry to support his Chinese troops in the China Burma India Theatre of World War II, General George Marshall sent a telegram to Stilwell notifiying him that America would organise their own Long Range Penetration Force made up of three groups, one from jungle warfare trained troops whose presence were no longer required in Panama, jungle warfare trained troops from Continental American army bases, and experienced jungle fighters from the South Pacific (Admiral Chester Nimitz's troops who had fought on Guadalcanal and in the Solomon Islands) and South West Pacific (General Douglas MacArthur's troops who had fought in New Guinea) Commands. The unit was renamed the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional) but more popularly known as Merrill's Marauders and carried out operations in Burma in 1944
