One More for Good Luck

I posted about the 50th Anniversary Battle of Iwo Jima Reuinion and Reenactment last February here, here and here.

This pic is from my friend Lew B., who lives right down the street and met me at the reunion last year. So much fun, and such an honor to see the guys who actually fought the battle. There must have been three or four surviving Medal of Honor winners in the parade, of a total of 27 awarded for the battle. I can't imagine what hell they must have endured, but if you're wondering what it was like a great place to start is Flags of our Fathers by James Bradley, which is being made into a movie by Clint Eastwood and should be out this year. I can't wait.
