Battle of Iwo Jima

Here is a lovely write up detailing part of our history.  It was created by one of my favorite, fellow bloggers and it’s wonderful reading. It begins…

“Today was the day in 1945 that our flag was raised – TWICE – on Iwo Jima by our courageous Marines… and there there is only ONE movie of the historic event explained in my story below.”

In Case You All Forgot…

  1. Aw, thanks, Doctor! And I see you succeeded! May all those souls that fought on that stinking island be at peace…and remembered with honor.

  2. Thank you for the link, and the reminder of our heroes that day!
