THEY WERE United States MARINES SIX BOYS AND 13 HANDS Each year I am hired to go to a Washington , DC , with the eighth grade class from Clinton , WI where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our Nation's Capital, and each year I take some special memories back with me. This fall's trip was especially memorable. On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima Memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history -- that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima , Japan, during WW II. Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, 'Where are you guys from?' I told him that we were from Wisconsin . 'Hey, I'm a cheese head, too! Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I ...

From the Marine Corps LEAGUE GOAL REACHED! We are sending Bob Gasche to the Iwo Jima Memorial. If you came here to donate, thank you! But the good people of this community have helped us raise $2400.00 to cover all the expenses of this four-day trip. Many people donated, but we want to thank three major contributors: MR. MARK AVERA, MR. DREW HILL and UNIVERSITY AIR CENTER (Bill Pokorny). Gator Detachment has arranged to send Bob Gasche, our Iwo Jima veteran, to visit (for the first time) the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington DC. Marine veterans Scott DuPree and Drew Hill will accompany Mr. Gasche, who will also visit Marine Barracks 8th&I as a VIP guest for the evening parade and spend a day in the National Marine Corps Museum. The trip is set for July 10th through the 13th

What do these pictures have in common? The very famous Marine Memorial in our nation's capitol, is the essence of America and our military hero's valiant efforts to preserve our freedoms and our nation. From Wikipedia: "The Marine Corps War Memorial (also called the Iwo Jima Memorial) is a United States military monument outside the walls of Arlington National Cemetery and next to the Netherlands Carillon, in Arlington Ridge Park, Arlington, Virginia. The memorial is dedicated to all personnel of the United States Marine Corps who have died in the defense of the United States since 1775. The memorial features the statues of the six servicemen who raised the second U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II, on February 23, 1945: Sergeant Michael Strank, Corporal Harlon Block, Private First Class Rene Gagnon, Private First Class Ira Hayes, Private First Class Franklin Sousley, and Pharmacist Mate Second Class, John Bradley (USN).

Union Bricklayers & US Marines teaming up again to beautify the Iwo Jima Memorial in Fall River, MA
My dad spent the day in Washington DC on Tuesday with WWll and Korean War vets, as part of the Honor Flight. They saw military monuments and statues. Dad liked seeing the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the changing of the guard at the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier. But what he kept coming back to was how the public reacted to seeing all of these vets. "They would just come up to us to say thank you. Regular people,ladies, and kids. They would hug us, thank us and clap. Just regular people,not part of a greeting group, workers, tourists, shoppers,they would stop what they were doing to thank us." Specially memorable was the Japanese guy thanking them and asking them to sign his flag,one of the vets asked the guy what he was going to do with the flag,the 'kid' looked up and answered " I'm keeping it." Dad ended the story by stressing that this happened IN THE RAIN! On behalf of the Honor Flight Vets I'd like to thank the city and tourists of Washington DC.

Thanks for the lotto selection. No matter what, I'll run up Iwo Jima Memorial Hill as fast as I can 4 U!
The first time I ran the hill at Iwo Jima Memorial was at the end of Marine Corps Memorial 2012, my first marathon -heck, my first road race, ever. Nearly in tears, I couldn't believe people were sprinting up that hill!!! I was just trying to hold on, come in under 4:00 (3:57 baby!) I just did 6 repeats at under 7:30, including Marshall Drive. Now, I own that hill. Well - the Marines and I.
The volunteers who maintain the Iwo Jima Memorial in New Britain are asking for your help and support. We are holding an event on May 18th to raise funds to maintain the memorial and to give thanks to all WWII Veterans. Our Special Guest Speaker is the son of flag raiser, Rene Gagnon who will be talking about his father. All WWII Vets invited free. Please see our FB page for details and to RSVP. Your help is needed to save the park and thank our veterans.

On 19 May, myself along with 9 Marines from 4th Recon Bn, Bravo Co will run from The Shepherd Center in Atlanta to the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington DC. This effort, 684 miles will test our mind, body and spirit. We will run, not for ourselves, but for each service member that the SHARE Military Initiative directly impacts. It is incumbent upon us as a people to lift up and support those who guarantee our ability to be free. Please visit www.Shepherdsmen.com to follow our progress. I would be humbled to receive your financial support. No amount is too small as we strive to raise $100,000 for this necessary, life saving program. We let down our brothers and sisters following the Vietnam War, it is imperative that history doesn't repeat itself. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

I graduated from boot camp at Parris Island on 9 October 1968. That day, after the ceremony, about 320 of us, newly minted Marines were turned loose for about 5 hours of Base Liberty. That meant that while we couldn't leave the base, we did have free reign to explore the museum and enjoy such fare as RC Cola and Moon Pies at the slop chute. We could pose for pictures at the Iron Mike Statue or the Iwo Jima Memorial (see mine here). All this and no one would hassle us (much). For the past 14 weeks, our every step had been hounded by ubiquitous Drill Instructors. Our world was ordered by the Staff Sergeants and NCO's wearing the famous campaign hats. My friends and I made a beeline for the slop chute and milk shakes. As we sat around slurping them, a commotion arose. We noticed a much older Marine in a garrison cap moving through the crowd. He's stop and speak to the brand new Privates and PFCs, get a response and keep moving. Now this was quite an event, because, as he got closer, we could see that h ...

I'm not by nature a religious person...due to a very diverse family background, I was raised in both the baptist and the catholic faith. I haven't followed it much as an adult, matter of fact my dog tags from the Navy say Agnostic/NRP. I have been on the fence with faith since my sons death in Afghanistan. Having been raised by both a USAF Veteran Father and a USMC Veteran Stepfather, and knowing the horrors my Grandfather must've witnessed during WWII, the Iwo Jima Memorial has special meaning to me as it does millions of others. This video touches my heart as I have as one of my prized possessions, a deck of cards found in my sons belongings before they were shipped back to my DIL, still containing the grains of sand from the land where he have his life. I humbled by this video...wether you are religious, or not, it's a must watch.
Many THANKS to Bethany Lutheran Church of West Hartford who donated this beautiful flower display for Veterans Day at the Iwo Jima Memorial. Also, other unknown donors of flowers left that day to remember our veterans were appreciated. It is very nice to see this being done to remember our veterans. Thanks to all of you.

The Arlington National Cemetery and Iwo Jima Memorial are somber but peaceful places.
With my own eyes I stood with Arlington Cemetery to my right, the National Mall straight ahead and the Iwo Jima Memorial to my left and watched the United States Park Police prevent Honor Flight Vets from seeing the Memorial. Later groups were able to park on a city street with the aid of Arlington VA Police. Two more groups were able to off load. Others like Ray Burton and I had driven in from all over the country and we helped push the wheel chairs of the men that stormed the beaches to the monument. I was horrified when a Korean War vet needed to go I the porta John and it was pad locked. The memorial and surrounding park were open to walk in. But the Park Police barricaded with 4 cars after portable barricades were emptied of water and removed the drive way so you could not drive in. There were a father son team of former sailors that were standing at the side walk leading in thanking them for their service and apologizing for the disrespect they were receiving. One mom was there with two sons and ver ...

There will be a lot of fanfare at Arlington National Cemetery, but did you know that it was once a thriving Black community. As you watch the ceremony, ask this question “How many people were taught this in American or Black History?” Excerpts from THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, Published: April 25, 2010 ARLINGTON Charter buses roll up to Arlington National Cemetery every day, depositing tourists who scramble uphill to see the eternal flame on President John F. Kennedy's grave. People stream in all directions, toward the Tomb of the Unknowns or to remember at tombstones of loved ones lost to war. Few, however, head downhill to a quiet corner near the Iwo Jima Memorial. Down here, there are no memorials to ancient battles, no ornate headstones honoring long-dead dignitaries. There are only rows of small unassuming white tombstones, many .. ...

Just finished up Mount Vernon! On our way to Arlington Cemetery, Iwo Jima Memorial, & the Vietnam War Memorial soon!
Friends who may attend the funeral on Tuesday, here are the details. (It's a workday so I understand if you cannot attend.) The service will be at Fort Myer, Virginia in the Memorial Chapel starting at 1PM on Tuesday, March 12th. There are a couple of entrances to the Post. The one that likely makes the most sense is called the "Wright Gate," which is a tenth of a mile or so from the Iwo Jima Memorial on Marshall Drive at Meade Street, just off Route 110 and Route 50. You will need to present a Drivers License for anyone in the car. All of this means that you need to aim to be at the Gate by about 12.15 or so...they may be slow. The service at the Chapel lasts only about 20 minutes. Rosa is singing and Elise is playing the flute - beautiful. After the service, is the formal burial procedure where he's taken to Arlington (which is literally the other side of a stone wall from the chapel). All in it lasts about an hour. After the burial you are all invited to a reception that my mother is hosting at F ...

1945 - Joe Rosenthal took took a picture of six United States World War II servicemen raising an American Flag on Mount Suribachin over Iwo Jima. The photo later became the model for the Iwo Jima Memorial (officially known as the Marine Corps War Memorial) near Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The memorial, dedicated in 1954, commemorates the U.S. Marines that died taking the Pacific island in World War II.

Big day on the 8th grade trip: White House, Newseum, National Air and Space Museum, the National Cathedral, the Jefferson Memorial, and Iwo Jima Memorial.

We only got lost or missed a turn I should say 4-5 times. Went to the Iwo Jima Memorial and then to Arlington National Cemetary to see Tomb of Unkown Soldier, Memorials for Challenger &Columbia Space Shuttles, JFK, Jackie, Edward, Robert and Joseph Kennedy, Jr Graves and changing of the Guard. Then to Lincoln Memorial, walked by Vietnam Memorial and found Stanton Setka name, WW 2 memorial, by White House, Holocaust Muesem and Money engraving building. All In All a good day! Stanton Setka was a year older then me and died in Viet Nam and from Riceville!

I am honored to be chosen to be a guardian of a World War II veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington, DC to visit the WWII Memorial. The flight is October 10. We'll have police escorts, a chartered jet, etc. We'll also visit the Lincoln, Korea, and Vietnam Memorials and Arlington Cemetery, Changing of the Guard, and Iwo Jima Memorial. What a great way to honor these veterans. I'll take lots of pictures to share. Each veteran has a guardian to help him with whatever he needs during the day.

Darn DC Metro ruining our chance to get to Iwo Jima Memorial today. Single track running, reduced schedule and a breakdown - conspiracy theories abound. But trip has been great otherwise.
