There is a gap for him on the muster rolls, between January and July of 1945, although he does show as being with the V Amphibious Corps, as a baker in the commissary.  The best information, as to whether he was actually on Iwo, will be in his NARA files.  

 

BTW - You are holding the flag backwards.
