The IJAA lost one of its favorite Iwo Jima Veterans as Carl Dehaven who went back to visit the “Black Sands” as often as he could passed last week. In the photo, he is on top of Mt. Suribachi with his daughter Kim. The landing beaches are in the background. Carl will be commemorated on March 24 when the Iwo Jima Association of America travels back to the island with their travel partner MHT.
