Iwo Jima Memorial & Museum

This is the original Iwo Jima sculpture that the monument in Arlington Virginia was cast out of. It is located at the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, Texas. Right next to Valley International Airport.

Harlan Block the Marine closest to the flag base was from Weslaco, Texas and is buried at this monument. He was killed in action 5 days after this famous image was capture by AP photographer Joe Rosenthal.

Inside the museum is a great 30 minute video about Iwo Jima. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. A visit to this site has a way of bringing out your patriotism.
