75th Anniversary of Iwo Jima
February 2020 will mark the 75th Anniversary of the Marine Corps assault on Iwo Jima. We must never forget those that sacrificed so much during this battle, in fact 22 U.S. Marines and 5 U.S. Navy Sailors received the Medal of Honor during this fight! Up till February 1945 no foreign power had ever conquered any Japanese territory in 5,000 years. Help us commemorate this anniversary by donating to support the publication that will forever honor those that served. As ADM Chester Nimitz stated, "Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue".
