In February of 2020, the world will mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima,
considered by many to be the United States Marine Corps’ defining moment; the battle
that gave America its most graphic icon of the war for control of the Pacific – Joe
Rosenthal’s photograph of six Americans raising the Stars and Stripes on war-torn
Mount Suribachi. .
Iwo Jima was the only major engagement of the Pacific War in which U.S. casualties,
killed and wounded, outstripped the total of Japanese dead. The Battle of Iwo Jima
represented to the Americans the pinnacle of forcible entry from the sea. This
particular amphibious assault was the ultimate ‘storm landing. 22 U.S. Marines and 5
U.S. Navy members received the Medal of Honor
