Gordon Ward USMC

Gordon Ward was born in Watertown, New York in 1923. He joined the Marine Corps in June of 1941 and served until his honorable discharge in March 1946. On February 19th, 1945, Gordon was on the 1st wave at Iwo Jima. He recalls, as historic photos confirm, that the only vessel on the beach at that time was a Japanese ship. He vividly remembers the vessels smoke stack and southern side being riddled profusely with bullet holes as a result of US aircraft and naval attack ships. After the war, courtesy to the G.I. Bill, Gordon attended Syracuse and Miami Universities, obtaining the title of Safety Engineer. Gordon remains an active docent at the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington DC, giving presentations, in an effort to educate and guide todays youth in this area of Americas history.
