IWO JIMA Bronze Star Group to NAVY SURGEON 5th Marine Divison

It caught my attention as soon as I saw it, especially the Bronze Star certificate.
He was a Surgeon and the CO of the 5th Medical Bn , attached to the 5th Marine Division. The 5th Med Bn saved a lot of lives on IWO.
The documents and photos do a great job of telling his story. Iwo Jima was the only battle be participated in during the war, however the impact of being there stayed with him for the rest of his life. You can really see it in his face when you look at the photos of him taken on Iwo.

Another fantastic group. Looks like you had a great SoS
I had a fairly decent show. I came home with 3 groups and a few items to sell. The items I bought to sell are already gone, so that worked out. It seemed like attendance was not as high as in years past, but that might be due to the weather,
