In 2 degree weather, Iwo Jima veterans honored the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the bloodiest battles in our history, with a wreath laying ceremony at the Marine Corps War Memorial.

“Today’s Marines are very proud to follow in the footsteps of the Marines of Iwo Jima. We pledge to keep you and the spirit of Iwo Jima alive.”

-Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., CMC
