Archive footage of Marines on Iwo Jima 15 Mar 1945. My two cousins Larry and Dennis both served at Iwo Jima. Dennis later killed on Okinawa June 1945 19 years old. Larry also at Pearl Harbor 7 Dec.
Thanks to all our service members and veterans for their sacrifice. Larry and Dennis were Tejon Tribe members.

Thanks for the heads-up: November 11 is just around the corner. And thanks for putting names to two of those who served in the PTO, and for identifying them so specifically.

I know nothing about the Tejon Tribe, except that is is a small tribe ( but perhaps part of a larger clan or nation). But I now know that at least two served (with the USMC and/or USN, I assume) in a time of national need.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers. And stay safe.
