Veterans gathered at the Wellington to remember those lost in war.
The annual Iwo Jima Reunion is officially underway.
Of the 27 brave men who received the Medal of Honor in the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima, only one survives, and he was in Texoma today to talk with some of today's generation of Marines at Fort Sill.
The annual Iwo Jima reunion starts Friday.
Hundreds of Sheppard Elementary School students put their best foot forward to welcome members of the greatest generation.
Iwo Jima veterans visited with new US Marines, teaching them about the history of Iwo Jima, but for them, it was also a day full of learning.
One of the treasures of Texoma will soon return to the area: The 22nd Annual Iwo Jima Reunion.
The 20th Annual Iwo Jima Survivor's reunion wrapped up Sunday morning, with a flag folding ceremony.
It's considered one of the most important battles of World War II, and
it was made famous by one of the most iconic military photos of all
Almost 70 years ago, around 80,000 U.S. troops fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima, and this weekend some of the survivors of that battle are in Wichita Falls for an annual reunion.
And many of the vets say the highlight of the reunion, each year, is their visit to Sheppard Elementary School.
It's the kind of thing that just makes you proud to be an American. Flags waving ... Cheers, handshakes, and high fives all around ...
Some American heroes who are in town for the annual Iwo Jima reunion got to pay a special visit to Fort Sill today, to meet up with some young Marines on post.
It was a special meeting ... generations of Marines interacting ... embracing their shared experiences.
