Recently, my husband was able to visit Iwa Jima for work. It's a rare opportunity and I'm so happy that he had the chance to visit because of the island's historical importance to his profession! Here are some photos from his trip.
Collecting some sand to bring home.
Many service members have left some part of their uniform on the island.
Mark told me he was trying to learn from all of the "artsy" pictures that I take. I think he did pretty good!!
This year marks 70 years since the Battle of Iwo Jima. Survivors and veterans gathered around the globe in March to pay tribute to the anniversary and I'm proud to say that my husband is amongst them.
