Re: 5th Marine Division - Iwo Jima
Dear Ol' Uncle Bob,
I just looked at this site and am inquiring where I need to write to regarding the 5th Marine Div. who was on Iwo Jima. I had a 2nd cousin that was the legal advisor for the guys, his office was a fox hole. His name was Capt. Allen M. Jones, he also worked in the legal office at Camp Pendleton before and after Iwo Jima.
I am also told by his father who was a brother to my grandfather they used Allen's boots in the making of the Iwo Jima monument.
As I have a photo of the monument when it was in the plaster cast stage.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
