I was with the 3rd Marine Division @ Iwo with an artillery company. I am now in my 92 second year and each day I thank our Lord for allowing me to come off that island in on piece. Why Christ is keeping me around is a mystery, as I am no longer a contributor to our great nation. Daily, my thoughts are of all our guys who were not as fortunate as me. My mind also visits with their families that received the news of their sons demise on that hell hole called Iwo Jima . WAS IT WORTH IT? Some day we will have the answer !
Dear one, I am THANKFUL for YOU and all the other brave men and women who stood up for our freedom, for our country and for the freedom of all people‼ In the end, the Lord does know. May the God of all peace give you His peace today and until you see His lovely face❣😘🙅🌹☝️
Mr. Curley, sir, you most certainly are a contributor still to our great nation! You are still a US Marine by God! Semper Fidelis, Brother!

If you would like to get a US Flag flown on IWO Jima, please email me. My email is email@example.com. This event happens ONLY 4 times for the year which are…
Invasion Day ( Already too late)
All I would need from you is a Flag and postage/address so I can resend it to you with a certificate of authenticity.
Your generous offer reminds me just how proud I am of my dad’s service in WW II as my son works today preparing his application for the US Naval Academy. Though my heart will not let me part with the American Flag that was given to me when my dad passed away. It made me dream for a minute how nice it would have been to know it was flown over the sacred island of IWO Jima.
I would like to visit Iwo Jima but it will cost me over $8Ks for a tour.

Where do you live?
I am a widow if a navy person. He wasn’t in Iwo Jima but he did 2 tours of Vietnam. I’m proud of the Military and the veterans for being brave and giving me Freedom . Thank you do much.
I am deeply indebted to all those who fought to protect the precious freedoms we enjoy in America. My dear Uncle Bob was in the Signal Corp and found himself on Iwo Jima. During his life, he never liked to speak about his war experiences. However when I was still a teenager, my Grandmother, several years before her death permitted me to read the letters he sent from Iwo Jima. I will never forget the emotions, yet the courage of my uncle under conditions only those who have experienced the horrors of war could imagine. Sadly, all the letters were lost after my grandmother’s death.
My thanks is so inadequate yet I hope no American will ever forget the sacrifice, the dedication and heroism of all our Servicemen during that terrible time and our thanks to all who now serve in the Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. God Bless America!!
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! ☝👍 👌
