Iwo Jima Flag Raising

75th Anniversary of Iwo Jima

featuring Guest Speaker Colonel Peter Underwood, USMC (Ret)
13 February 2020 – 6pm

Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel – 609 Sutter St, San Francisco

Please join us for an event commemorating the 75th Anniversary of Iwo Jima on Thursday, 13 February 2020 at 6pm at the Marines’ Memorial Club. Our Guest Speaker will be Colonel Peter Underwood, USMC (Ret).

We will be remembering those who fought on Iwo Jima 75 years ago as Colonel Peter Underwood, USMC (Ret) talks about the strategy and history of the battle. Colonel Underwood served in the United States Marines for 32 years and currently teaches a course on strategy and operations for the Naval War College’s College of Distance Education and is writing a history of the Marine Corps in the First World War. He is also a historian and tour guide with Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours.

Because of the brutality of the fighting, the fact that the battle occured fairly close to the end of World War II, and the famous flag-raising photo from Joe Rosenthal, Iwo Jima – and those who lost their lives trying to capture the island – retain a great deal of significance even today.

This is a free event; please RSVP by clicking the link below or calling 415-673-6672 ext 238.
