Reviewed 3 October 2012

i love this memorial. what our grand fathers and fathers went through just to be able to hang that flag is nothing short of heroic. and for you really young kids if you want just a hint of what they went through i suggest you watch the first few minutes of saving private Ryan. and that was just in the European war. it was probably worse where these guys were in this memorial .

“I met some of those who made it happen”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

Excellent tribute to those who fought and died (or survived) in one of the fiercest battles in American history. The Iwo Jima Survivors didn't claim to be the heroes -- they were just the survivors, they said. But they built a fitting tribute to their fallen comrades. We still go there.

“Does not compare to the original memorial in Arlington VA”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

This is a replica of the original Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, VA and disappointing in comparison.
