Iwo Jima

The 34-day battle for the island of Iwo Jima was one of the bloodiest of World War II in the Pacific. Located in the Volcano Islands, Iwo Jima was considered a vital point for disabled American bombers to land when returning from air raids on the Japanese home islands, and more than 20,000 airmen were saved from ditching in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean after the eight-square-mile island was captured in March 1945. Iwo Jima was the scene of the iconic raising of the U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi, which has become emblematic of the valor of the U.S. Marine Corps.
