Iwo Jima 5th Marine Division Cemetery Original Photo
Going to one of my local antique store haunts last weekend, I decided to sit down and look through a huge pile of photos and one of the last photos I found in the box is what I believe is an original photo of the 5th MarDiv Cemetery at Iwo Jima. By the looks of the building in the background I believe the photo dates from around 1946. A tragic reminder of the huge cost of fighting on Iwo Jima.
