Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, pay respects at the Reunion of Honor memorial 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. "When I founded the Joint Reunion of Honor in 1995, it was my intention that it was for that year only," said Snowden, the oldest surviving U.S. Marine of the battle. "It was such a success that we have been doing it each year since." Tong is Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy.
