VIDEO: Senior Surviving Officer of Iwo Jima Remembers

They’re called the Greatest Generation for a reason, and retired Lieutenant General Lawrence Snowden is the senior surviving officer of Iwo Jima. And in this video, he reminisces about the battle.

Here is a little video of LTG Snowden from 2012 – just a few months from his 91st birthday – describing the scale of the battle for Iwo Jima. Still an officer and a gentleman.

General Snowden is 93 now, and it’s good to see him keeping the memories of the Marines at Iwo Jima alive. He calls himself the “luckiest Marine in the world”, but the truth is, it’s us who are lucky to be able to call him one of our own.
