I served aboard the USS IWO JIMA LPH2 during the VIET-NAM war . Or Captain took our ship past the island and we saw remnants of the war. We prayed for all souls that day in 1966.

My great grandfather was in the 5th marine division and was kia on iwo jima. I’m desperate to find out more info. Maybe there’s a veteran from the 5th that remembers him. I was told by my grandmother that he joined up when he was 34. Quite a bit older than most. She said most of the guys looked up to him because he was older. That may help someone remember him. I really just want to learn all I can about my grandfather that gave his life for our country. Something I am very tour of. His name was William F. Boyd. Pvt 5th marine division.
Hi. My dad delbert o greenlee of sioux falls sd was also in the 5th division. You should contact my brother david greenlee of garretson sd, as he knows more than me
I am free today because the brave men of the U.S. Military confront our nation’s enemy today, and fought honorably, relentlessly and victoriously for me and you during WWII. I am 59 yrs. old, and with each and every breathing moment I am respectfully grateful. Thank You Sargent! ☝👍 👌
