The greatness of the Iwo Jima Memorial on the Newington/New Britain line goes beyond the obvious quality of craftsmanship and impeccable maintenance. At the root of this fine memorial's distinction is a dedicated group of selfless volunteers whose entire lives are committed to ensuring the memory of Iwo Jima and those who perished there is justly honored. You can sense the meticulous care and respect from the very moment you enter the grounds. I have had the privilege of getting to know some of these folks, and I am impressed. I also have not hesitated in recommending this group in a professional capacity as a veterans charity worthy of support. This is a small-town, grass roots gem.
