“Twenty-seven Medals of Honor—the highest honor given to members of the military—were awarded for actions of conspicuous gallantry in the Battle of Iwo Jima.”


Among the countless millions of human events postponed, rescheduled, or cancelled in the long hard year 2020, one was a gathering scheduled for an eight square mile volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean. The gathering was to be a “Reunion of Honor” commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima.
