Hell on a very small island

Today is the sixtieth anniversary of the invasion of Iwo Jima, the beginning of the unbelievably brutal 36-day battle for the first island of the Japanese homeland reached by American forces. Marines bore the brunt of the battle and suffered horrendous losses. Don’t miss this Kerrville Daily Times article on the Legend of Heroes Memorial created by Danielle Girdano: “Iwo Jima sixty years later.” Or Arthur Herman’s OpinionJournal tribute: “Iwo Jima.”
