The Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which supports the mission started by the Iwo Jima Survivors Association. It works to maintain the National Iwo Jima Memorial located on the New Britain-Newington town line in Connecticut. It also serves to educate the public about the battle of Iwo Jima and to pay tribute to the men who fought and died there.
Results:
We have posted 100 flag units around the park on the new fence. Each flag flies in memory of one of the 100 Servicemen from Connecticut that was killed during the Battle of Iwo Jima.
