Iwo Jima tank wreck

There is one WWII USMC tank left on Iwo from the battle…an M4A3 of 4th Tank Bn…I have been working on identifying this tank and have gotten it locked down finally. I have identified the tank, the crew and the circumstances of the loss – and even have found photos of the tank taken right after it was destroyed.

There are no other tanks on the island – either US or Japanese…they were all removed and scrapped back in the 50s and 60s by Japanese contractors.
