Exclusive design shows photos of what it was like for our brave heroes who fought on the black volcanic sands of Iwo Jima. It's a great way to honor the sacrifice our Marines made to free the world from tyranny.
February 19 of 1945: D-Day…
Intelligence had grossly underestimated island conditions, the coming weather, and, most of all, the enemy’s fortifications. But despite the mounting obstacles, none had anticipated the resolve of the United States Marine Corps. For five grueling weeks, Marines engaged in one of the grittiest and bloodiest fights of the Pacific War – the Battle for Iwo Jima.
Victory would come at a cost of over 26,000 American casualties. 22 U.S. Marines and 5 U.S. sailors would earn our nation’s highest military accolade, the Medal of Honor. In fact, 28% of all Medals of Honor awarded to U.S. Marines during World War II were earned during the Battle of Iwo Jima. And as of 2018, Hershel W. Williams is the only Medal of Honor Marine from this battle living with us today.
