The Iwo Jima Memorial, also known as the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, honors the Marines who have died defending the United States since 1775.  The Iwo Jima Memorial is located near Arlington National Cemetery, in Arlington, Virginia.  The memorial stands just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC.

 

 
 

 
 
 

     
     
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
     
     
 
     
     
 
     
     
 
     
     
Being a Florida native, I found this fact interesting.  I did not realize that the Marines were in Florida helping us with the Indian Wars.
