Don Graves – WWII Veteran, Iwo Jima Survivor

May 24 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

Don Graves was a 19-year-old U.S. Marine when he stormed the beaches at Iwo Jima on February 19, 1945.  At that early age he had already shown his willingness to show courage.  He was an Assault Squad Leader and carried a flamethrower in the 28th Marine Regiment.  He fought and survived all 36 days of combat on the hellish, sulfur-spewing, volcanic island.  Don Graves was near the group of Marines who raised the Stars and Stripes on Mount Suribachi and witnessed the famous flag-raising first-hand.
