I have posted on the blog a few times in the last three months; many mistakes have cluttered my postings so I invite you to read my posts as a new blog. Dates may be incorrect although the stories are accurate.
February is our shortest month but it is filled with special days. Among them I thought I could never forget was the invasion of Iwo Jima.Our ship took Marines to the islands for several days of fierce fighting. I remember the flag raising, whic led to the famous picture, followed by statures being erected.
