Dedication of the Statue

The Iwo Jima Statue near Arlington National Cemetery depicts the February 23, 1945, raising of the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima by 5 Marines and 1 Navy Hospital Corpsman. Sadly, 3 of the marines later died on Iwo Jima as fighting continued on. The statue was dedicated on November 10, 1954, the 179th anniversary of the U.S. Marine Corps., by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Inscribed in the granite base are the names and dates of every major Marine Corps engagement.

Valor, Honor and Virtue

Inscribed on one side of the base is, "In honor and in memory of the men of the United States Marine Corps who have given their lives to their country since November 10, 1775."  Inscribed on the opposite side is, "Uncommon Valor was a Common Virtue." A somber place to visit is the Normandy American Cemetery, the final resting place of WWII U.S. troops, overlooking the French beach where many of the young Americans came ashore on D-Day, June 6, 1944, with each grave identified with a white grave marker.

Honor both veterans and those who gave their lives with this World War II Iwo Jima commemorative ornament.
