3rd MLG reflects on history, logistics during battle site visit

An old Japanese weapon lies rusted on the island of Iwo To, nearly 67 years after the Battle of Iwo Jima. Sixty-eight Marines and sailors with 3rd Marine Logistics Group visited the island for a professional military education tour. The service members had the opportunity to reflect on the lives lost during the battle and observe significant features on the island including caves, pill boxes and bunkers. 3rd MLG is a part of III Marine Expeditionary Force.
