The Iwo Jima Marine Memorial

      This is the famous monument to the Marines that died at the fierce battle for Iwo Jima.

      We were told that a Marine veteran approached the monument with a Mason jar of sand from Iwo Jima and poured it around the base of the monument.

      At least some of the rock they are standing on actually came from Mount Suribachi.

      Or at least, so were we told.
