Marine Corps War Memorial Adds Iraq and Afghanistan Conflicts
The Marine Corps War Memorial, also known as the Iwo Jima Memorial, was updated on Tuesday to include the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. General Robert Neller, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, took the opportunity to speak about the sacrifice of service members. "Because they are no longer with us in the flesh, we must take a moment to thank their families," he said. "Keep them in your thoughts and your prayers."
