My paternal grandfather died on Iwo Jima March 2, 1945. I never knew him, nor did my father. His name was 2ndLt. George K. Todd and all I know is he served with the 3rd Marine Division.
If by chance any of the survivors knew and remember him, I'd love to hear what he was like, what kind of man he was. I often wonder how different my fathers life, as well as my own would have turned out had he survived.
