A 3rd Marine Division coat attributed to a vetaran of Iwo Jima has actually been a bit difficult for me to locate. Considering that only two regiments fought in the battle and the 2nd Battle of Guam being a difficult battle for the Division made it difficult for me to locate one. One appeared recently that had already been researched. Apparently the Smithsonian interviewed him for their archives about this experiences in WWII which makes this a nice addition to this uniform. I applaud this Marine and the sacrifices he made in WWII!
