The Battle of Iwo Jima Tribute

February 19, 1945 - 8:59 A.M.
U.S. Marines landed on the beaches of Iwo Jima. The hellish battle lasted
for 36 days until the American forces captured and gained control of the
island on March 26.

But not without great loss to the American soliders. 6,821 were killed and
19,217 were wounded. This site is a tribute to those solders.


This site is done in honor of the men and women who didn't make it home as well as those who have fought and died for our country in wars and conflicts since.

I'm currently working to grow this site and provide more useful content for our many site visitors. Our biggest new feature is the blog that will allow our site visitors to communicate with each other.
