Awe inspiring monument

The bronzes are beautiful, and the area is immaculate. It is so nice to see that the grounds are kept up so well.

Take the Time and Stop Here
Oct 2020 • Couples
If you are a USMC veteran, of any era, you should stop here. I stopped in memory of my Uncle, who fought there, and was wounded, with F Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Marines, 5th MARDIV.
The memorial is very well done, with a brief but correct description of why this battle was important to help end World War Two. And the cost in lives. And why we should remember the sacrifices made by Americans of our Greatest Generation, that allow us to live our lives in freedom.

Please, Take A Few Minutes
Jan 2020
It doesn't take long to tour this little site, but it's an emotional experience as well as being educational. In this day when it's national news when a few of our service men or women lose their lives overseas, it's astonishing to read about the staggering number of people who's sacrifice did so much to bring an end to World War Two. It will help you to appreciate the few veterans of that war who are still with us. I live just down the street, and I'm embarrassed that it took me a few years to get around to stopping by.

I really liked the memorial. I had my grandson with me a 17 year old. He enjoyed it as well. It is right next to Central Connecticut State University. It has some interesting items with the memorial; such as, the rocks at the base are from Mt. Suribachi, and the base of the memorial has volcanic sand from the island of Iwo Jima. In addition there is a memorial for the medical corpsmen and doctors who performed miraculously during the battle. It took approximately 20 minutes to view and is handicap accessible.

Beautiful but small park. Difficult to get pictures in late morning/afternoon.. best to come very early or at dusk. Eternal flame monument, and statue are incredible.

A well done tribute to our veterans
Jun 2019 • Couples
We visited this solemn and revered memorial today, while we were on vacation in the area. We were here doing some Geocaching and Waymarking. Although we were too young at the time, we have learned from movies and history about this tragic event and the sacrifices that were made by so many. It is so worth remembering as to not let it happen again. Thanks for bringing us here. RickAnn (Fred & Judie)

Try to get here either at dawn, or dusk. There’s an eternal flame; and plenty of parking. It’s an easy off and on to the Route 9 connector just past CCSU

A Tremendous Tribute to our Veterans
Oct 2018 • Business
I've driven by the signs to this Memorial for years, and finally took the time to stop and pay my respects. On a chilly but bright and sunny afternoon, I stood and read the names inscribed on the monuments. What a tribute to those who fought so hard to maintain our freedom - a lasting memorial for all to see. It's something everyone should stop for, take a little while out of a busy life, and remember that they fought for our freedom - so that we could enjoy this busy life!

A well done tribute to our Beterans
May 2018 • Couples
The Memorial is a touching tribute. This can be a good learning experience for families, or a place to come for a little mindfulness for yoursel, to reflect, to honor and to appreciate those who have given so much for all of us. This Memorial is something that so many drive past on the highway daily and see all the time and probably have never gotten off the highway to stop and see what it is., But, I recommend you stop and see what it is. Things are so different when you actually take the time to stop, take a break from the daily stresses and rigor and actually live in the moment - to see the Memorial and experience what it has to offer, up close and personal. It takes on so much more meaning.

Fitting hero’s tribute
Mar 2018 • Friends
The Iwo Jima Survivors Memorial Park is a peaceful place to reflect on the sacrifices these brave service members made for us and how great it is to be an American.

I went during the day and it was nice. I was looking through the photos on here and a few visited during dusk. Their photos are fantastic.

It’s a free attraction, easy to get to and parking is a available. Check it out.
