In the "strove to be realistic and accurate" 1960s TV series Combat, the lieutenant had a carbine, and the sergeant had a submachine gun. I can't remember if anyone in the squad used a mortar or machine gun, but everyone else except the medic had a Garand.

Combat was set in post D-Day France, not the Pacific, if that makes any difference.
