What does 2d Brigade or 3d Marine Division , mean in the Gulf War Chronicles, or anything else that has a 2d, or 3d if front of it? I was thinking it maybe meant three different Marine Divisions put together or two different Brigades, but what do I know.

The Marines have a unique abbreviation; 2d means Second and 3d means Third. So 3d Battalion of the 2d Marine Regiment is Third Battalion of the Second Marine Regiment.
