In compliance with Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Section 12aa the Marine Corps League annually conducts an “IWO JIMA Day” ceremony. Therefore, on Tuesday February 19, 2019 beginning at 11:00am in Memorial Hall in the State House will hold a ceremony to those who fought at IWO JIMA. We expect that there will be 5-7 veterans of this historic battle in attendance. A collation will follow. Finally, by honoring these veterans we let our Legislators know that we care about our veterans. So, a good turnout not only honors those who fought at Iwo Jima but lets the legislators know that veterans are a viable entity. Leon, Arty Marchetta, Tin Eaton, and myself will be attending the AMVETS State of Massachusetts representing our State CMDR Tom Norton as he can not attend any other AMVETS are welcome to attend.
