Said her husvband had his camera and figured it was a kind of important event. She had ZERO clue as to how important they were and was kind of embarrassed ot even bring them in.
They were just amazing. At the time they were going to make her a dupe copy to keep, and she was going to donate them, but I used to ask in my next visits about them, and no one had heard a thing. So I wondered what had happened.
They looked very much like these (in my memory) but then it could be a different person. Any idea where these came from? website? etc.

That was feared by many of the initial landing forces as the Japanese had dialed in every meter of the beach.
Once the walking started it was dig in, move off the beach or get killed.

The sanborn lost a lot of officers killed on the Iwo landing and one of the beach party sailors earned a Silver Star.
