Good Men


My experience one Saturday afternoon at the Iwo Jima Memorial Monument made it clear that our Revolutionary War for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness changed the trade, commerce, opportunities, standard of living, and history; not just in the Western Hemisphere, but in the whole world.

When the taxi pulled up to the memorial, I told the driver to wait. I only wanted to read the plaque, take a photo and return to my hotel. As I walked around the circular drive, I noticed all of the other tourists were gathered to one side, standing off in a state of shock and awe.
