Remembering Iwo Jima

Today marks 60 years since the launch of the American assault on Iwo Jima. Here are some of the great sites to read more on this slice of WWII...

-> Blackfive with Iwo Jima and Part 2
I especially enjoyed the Op-Ed piece by Zell Miller at the Washington Times

-> Mudville Gazette has a WWII 60th Anniversary post

-> Powerline marks the day with Hell on a Very Small Island

-> Michelle Malkin notes that it is also the 63rd anniversy of the signing of the West Coast Evacuation Order


Reader Pancho noted that there is a memorial being held this weekend in honor of the anniversary, at the Admiral Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg, TX. Present for the events on Sunday will be Marine Commandant, General Michael Hagee, and Oliver North.

Thanks, Pancho!
