Comments: Spent a year on Iwo as one of the Tech's who assembled new transmitters after 1/4 mile antenna collapsed destroying transmitter building. Remember fought large brush fire soon after arriving while old ammo was exploding all around us. Was there 1964-65.
Lots of memories including the 20th Anniversary of the raising of the flag. Lots of hours boondocking.
Still here from Matt ,Don and Nels. Anybody else out there?

Comments: I was on the USCG Loran Station Iwo Jima in 1974. Went through a lot of changes and awakenings on that island. Met some really great people and some not so great ones . . . both sides of which include myself. I appreciate the experience(s) I had there. Would love to hear from anyone that was there during that time.
