Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, gives a speech March 19 during the annual Reunion of Honor ceremony. This year's ceremony commemorated the 69th anniversary of the battle on Iwo To, formerly known as Iwo Jima, Japan. "Whether you came here today from America or Japan," said Amos, "we find similarities in the warriors that that met on this battlefield 69 years ago. The same virtues of honor, discipline and devotion were embodied by all. Their iconic 'Uncommon Valor' became legendary in history books, and created ethos that has transcended generations."
