Regarding the Iwo Jima memorial, there is only one place to stand this memorial, and that's at the Veterans Park behind the Manatee Memorial Hospital. With this statue, everyone will be able to see, and link this with all veterans, past and present. We owe this to all of them.
There are a lot of people who do not know about this park, and seeing this will enlighten them on the very meaning of what the Veterans Park is all about.
Thank you, from the Honor Guard of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10141 in Bradenton.
