The Battle of Iwo Jima (19 February – 26 March 1945) was a major battle in which the United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army(IJA) during World War II. The American invasion, designated Operation Detachment, had the goal of capturing the entire island, including the three Japanese-controlled airfields (including the South Field and the Central Field), to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands. This five-week battle comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the Pacific War of World War II.
The All Gave Some, Some Gave All flag is made with curly maple and sapele (mahogany) hardwoods. The Iwo Jima carving is made of cherry wood. The only color added is the blue and some charring on the carving. We used 9mm spent brass casings for the stars. It is finished with a gloss or satin post-catalyzed lacquer finish, which is very strong and durable. It's the same finish we put on our furniture. Pictured flag is in gloss. This is currently a made to order item and is available in one size measuring 17"x 32"x 3/4". Contact us for custom sizes.
