The Iwo Jima Commemorations are on Saturdays as the Joint Ceremony with the Japanese are conducted at the Memorial above Red Beach.  Visits to Mt. Suribachi and the Landing Beaches to walk the "Black Sands" are always scheduled.   The Iwo Jima Association of America (IJAA) in cooperation with United Airlines will have chartered jets for the day long visit to walk the battlefields of this fateful clash during the Pacific War.  Guam will again be the base of operations for the IJAA Battle Symposium and Anniversary Banquet.

Early in the morning we will depart Guam for a day-long Memorial Tour and Observance on Iwo Jima.  Upon arrival, you will be met by the official U.S. and Japanese Government delegation consisting of representatives from the Armed Services. (We will land on the site of Motoyama airfield #2.)  After visiting Mt. Suribachi  and the scene of the famed flag raising captured by Joe Rosenthal  on 23 Feb 1945. Afterwards, Veterans and their families will gather near the landing beaches to conduct Memorial Services at the Anniversary Monument. These services, conducted by Dignitaries and Veterans of the United States and Japan, will remember and memorialize those young men who gave their lives during the savage campaign for the island.  Following a box lunch, we will continue touring the island to include the landing beaches. Late in the day we will return to the airfield where this historic day began, to gather one last time in friendship and camaraderie on the sacred soil of Iwo Jima.
