Remember the Battle for Iwo Jima

It was 64 years ago today that the United States raised it’s flag on the top of Mount Suribachi on the island of Iwo Jima.  The battle for the island took place from February 19, 1945 through March 26, 1945… and was a crucial step for the United States in ending Japan’s involvement in World War II.

Remember our soldiers and heroes from the past, and pray for our soldiers and heroes of the present.
