    My DS is a Naval Airman stationed at Iwakuni MCAS. He just arrived two weeks ago in Japan and his squadron is flying out (if all goes according to plan) to Iwo Jima this week to honor the 70th Anniversary. He is pretty jazzed as John Bradley, one of the flag holders in the famous picture, went to a local school in our hometown.

    Ghosts of Iwo Jima is a beautiful tribute to the heroes who never came home. http://www.navy.mil/ah_online/ftrStory.asp?issue=3&id=85668
