Just by way of closure, I moved the 65th to Clark Field, and then shipped them back to Takao. They still refuse to recover, despite having the run of the place on Formosa (lots of supply, ground support etc).
I have long since decided that these guys will spend the rest of the war garrisoning some god forbidden south pacific island. They have nobody to blame but themselves
I have had similar issues with trying to get a Marine Regiment (6th IIRC) to fill out, first at San Diego and then at San Francisco. Lots of supply, lots of devices in the pools, leader with Admin skills in the 60s. There is enough support at the base and West Coast Command is in range. There were other units also drawing replacements, but not Marine squads - just the one Marine Regiment. It would never draw more than one Marine squad at a time, but there were enough in the pool to fill out the unit.
I decided that either other units on the map drawing from the pool caused it to reach its limit for issue of Marine Squads on the turn or the index number of the Marine Regiment is higher than all the other units and the AI just never gets to it while doing all the other replacements. Other Marine Regiments that arrived at San Diego many weeks later filled out quickly.
