Sunday marks 72 years since the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the bloodiest battles of World War II. The struggle for the island began Feb. 19, 1945. The now-iconic flag raising on Mount Suribachi occurred on Feb. 23, but it took almost a month more of fighting before the U.S. claimed control of the entire island on March 26. I congratulate all the patriots on this Heroic Day in military history. The American armed forces have always been and always will be the most combat-ready and efficient. The military operation on Iwo Jima showed the world that the US military is invincible. And if we have to, the US military once again will show their brilliance in the battle with Islamism. veteranscomefirst veterans_us Veterans Usveterans veteransUSA SupportVeterans Politics USA America Patriots Gratitude HonorVets thankvets supportourtroops semperfi USMC USCG USAF Navy Army military godblessourmilitary soldier holdthegovernmentaccountable RememberEveryoneDeployed Usflag StarsandStripes: VETERANS CO FIRST 100,000 LEGOS ANDITSTHE GREATEST LEGOCREATION EVER Sunday marks 72 years since the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the bloodiest battles of World War II.
