Major General Fred Haynes leaves for Iwo Jima today on a trip by Military Historical Tours. Every year, MHT returns veterans to the battlefield. For many of the men it is their first trip to the island since the battle. Fifteen veterans will be returning to the island on this trip. Some of the veterans are Japanese who fought against the Americans.

General Haynes has made several trips back to the island and has published a book on the battle, “Lions of Iwo Jima.” He shared part of his story at the 2008 American Veterans Center’s conference. Read more about the trip.
