Review for Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation Inc, Newington, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is the best memorial in the country. It was built by the survivors and maintained by donations there is no federal or state money.The park and the events are the best I've ever been to. Even though it's a Marine Memorial it is open to all veterans. God Bless all the donors

Thank you Jack, That is a good point. The memorial is for all branches of the service and we recognize they all served on Iwo Jima. All our events are for all Veterans no matter when they served. The only event that we focus mainly on Iwo Jima is the Anniversary Ceremony on February 23rd. The Iwo Jima Survivors are credited for all they did and for the detailed, thoughtful planning and building of this Memorial.

 

Review for Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation Inc, Newington, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I am a Marine who was on active duty from 1980-1984 although this was before my time I think it is the greatest monument of all. The flag that is flying has 48 stars just like the original flag and sand and stones from IWO JIMA. The most impressive thing is that is was built by the survivors. I visit this monument at least once a month and it brings tears to my eyes every time I'm there.
