Battle of Iwo Jima 75 years on

Recommended Posts

The "Greatest Generation" for sure. But don't doubt that there are many Americans capable of bravery today. We just don't see them in the socialist/globalist news media, but they are there.

It's the last war America had to win. If it happened again we would get out the whoop ass.  These days there isn't as defined an enemy and they tend to hide behind women and children. If we ever had to take the gloves off again and it was at the point it was winner takes all it would be the same. The modern enemy knows there are rules we are supposed to follow and constantly exploits them. 

 

My Grandfather drove an amphibious tank when we invaded Japan. My Grandmother was a nurse in the Navy.

Do you mean Okinawa or are you talking about Japanese territories?

A Marine veteran of that battle left a captured Japanese flag to me upon his passing. The flag bears many signatures and may lead to his identity. I'm hoping the flag can be returned to a member of his close family.
