Gary and I would like to thank all of you who were involved with the Purple Heart Ceremony Sept 21. We were very happy with all aspects of how it turned out and we thank you all for your help.

You are our heroes….those who helped clean and prepare the park for visitors, set up the ceremony and take down, program participants and speakers and our supporters who attended. We are grateful for all that you do time and time again. Hopefully the publicity will help to bring in more visitors, support for the park and help for maintaining it. We would like to host more events like this and I am sure the Haddad family will forever cherish the memories made that day. The work done by the Charlie Company Marines from Plainville was outstanding and we would like to thank every one of them for all they did!

We regret not having more time to speak with each of you longer but know that we appreciate all of you.

In case you are interested, we have posted links to the news videos and newspaper articles on our website EVENTS page. http://www.sosiwojima.com/​4_Events.html Please keep up to date with our activities and what is going on at the park by visiting the Iwo Jima Survivors website and Facebook page.

Dear Bob Stone,
I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your Guard Riders who attended the Iwo Jima Survivor Purple Heart Ceremony 9/21. It was really nice and the flag line they made added a special touch to the event making the Survivors and other veterans feel appreciated. I wanted to post these photos for you but didn’t know how. Maybe you can add them to the appropriate place on your Facebook site and thank all your members for us.
