Walking Hallowed Ground at the Reunion of Honor

Jim Compton visited the Island of Iwo Jima on the 50th anniversary of the Marine Corps' most costly single action battle.

Jim's older and only brother Bill was killed on Iwo Jima in 1945. He was eighteen years old.

Jim's story of his visit is being formatted and will appear here as soon as it is finished. The pictures will be titled and linked to the story.
