  1. Looks like Iwo Jima.

    • My son, Jack Richard Robinson II, is one of the last males to carry our family heritage is named after one of my uncles whom I have never met. He was killed on Iwo Jima, February 28, 1945 at the age of 19. To visit there is near the top of my bucket list. A trip that my father wanted to make but was never achieved.

      We shall never forget.

      • According to stories told at the occasional family reunions with my mother's side of the family, my grandfather's brother was supposedly a Navy Corpsman on Iwo during the campaign. I am planning on doing some research on him to see exactly where he served, and with what units. I met him several times when I was a child. He was a very humble man and I liked him a lot. Sadly like most of this generation, he is now deceased.

        I always say that freedom isn't free...

  2. Nice Iwo Jima series, Rob.

  3. The graveyard image is one of the strongest images of WW2 I’ve seen in a long time
