  • The grounds are well kept and the statue speaks for itself. The people in the shop are very friendly. The short video is worth a watch. Overall, my family and I had a great experiences and learned a bit more on the battle.
  • Plaster replica of the original. Nice park with good explanation material situated around. Gift shop is closed on Sunday. Talks about all of the sacrifices of the Marines over time and especially at Iwo Jima. Much historic value in understanding the significance of this island of rock as it was actually the first part of Japan- Tokyo prefecture- that the US attempted to take. The famous photo of the flag raising was actually the second raising, primarily for photo ops. 3 of the 6 men died before the fighting was over.
  • This is a must visit if you are in The Valley and have any sense of history whatsoever. The statue was actually the mole where the memorial at Arlington cemetery
  • Beyond expectations. Very impressive. Small, but emotionally overwhelming. A must see even if you have seen the one in D.C.
  • Original statue of Iwo Jima located at the Marine Academy in Harlingen Texas. What a beautiful and patriotic tribute to our failen Veterans who fought so hard for our country. Also present is a place where you can bring your old flags to be burnt. A museum is also available so you can buy military memorabilia. A must stop in your visit. Absolutely beautiful.
