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.

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.

This is a part of history that is hidden in a small park off a highway exit. I guess at least it is being acknowledged as it well should be. I think it's a very powerful park even though it's not very big.

They did a very nice job with this statue to remember the boys who gave their lives at Iwo Jima so that we could have ours. Stop by and see it if you're in the area. Lots of parking and no worries about getting in and out.

This is a nice spot for reflection. Right next to highway, but I think that brings more people to it.

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.

This is a simply and emotional monument that can help explain the die-heart sacrifice during wwII.

Please respect the seriousness and atmosphere, good to be prepared with an authentic account of history.

As a former Marine I think it is great to have this Memorial located within a few miles from my home. It is very well maintained, touching tribute our Iwo Jima survivors. - Semper FI
