Iow Jima memorial Facts 

The purpose of the Iwo Jima Memorial was to
provide a place to honor American servicemen who fought valiantly in Japan in 1945.

Iwo Jima was a little island in the south of Japan’s capital Tokyo. The battle of Iwo Jima proved tough to the American forces since they had captured most of the territories in Japan. When they finally did after 72 hours of battle, they raised the American flag on mount Suribachi that surround Iwo Jima

The Iwo Jima memorial is therefore a tribute to honor their valor for the nation.

The  American flag that was raised in Iwo Jima was done by five marines viz: Sgt. Micheal Strank, Capt. Harlon Block, Pfc. Franklin R. Souslev, Pfc. Rene Gagnon, Pfc.Ira Hayes and PhM. John Bradley. The memorial was dedicated by President Eisenhower in 1954.
