The Iwo Jima Survivors bravely served our country during World War II. Now they need your help. The National Iwo
Jima Memorial Monument and Park was built by the Survivors of the Battle of Iwo Jima. It was unveiled and
dedicated on February 23, 1995, the 50th Anniversary of the historic flag raising atop Mt. Suribachi. The monument
remembers those 6,821 American servicemen who lost thier lives while fighting on Iwo Jima. The front panel lists the
names of the 100 men from Connecticut that were killed in action during the battle. The park contains an Eternal
Flames which burns 24 hours a day in memory of all those who fought in World War II. The park also includes
memorials to the Chaplains and Medical Corpsmen.
The Iwo Jima Survivors Association, Inc. and the Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation Inc. need to raise funds
to maintain and care for the park. The Iwo Jima Memorial Monument and Park is not presently owned or operated
by the State or other governmental agency. It is privately owned by these organizations and maintenence costs
must be raised in order to keep the park operating. Currently, the costs to maintainand run the park FAR EXCEED
