Happy St. Patrick's Day

I would like to share with you and all U.S. Marines. These photos show images of World War II, the Pacific Theater, U.S. Marines, Iwo Jima, February 19 – March 26, 1945, in commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the most costly battle in U.S. Marine Corps history. (7,500 U.S. Marine Corps casualties and 21,000 Japanese casualties).

There also is a picture of the the window of my apartment here in sunny Bristol, Pennsylvania. "Happy St. Patrick's Day!"
