US Marine Corps War Memorial Iwo Jima

Free
iwo jima memorial

Just outside the gates of the cemetery is the United States Marine Corps War Memorial which is for all Marines who have given their lives in service since 1775, but it is often called the Iwo Jima Memorial because it depicts the famous flag raising on top of Mt. Surabachi. The memorial was dedicated November 10, 1954, the 179th birthday of the Corps. It is one of the world’s largest bronze statues and it’s quiet breathtaking to see in person.
