My compliments. You and I were in that part of the world in 1965, and sadly only I came back. Brave woman. Good journalist. Sorry about your bad luck. I hope it was rewarding for you, you left behind some remarkable work. RIP

US Marines hit the island of Iwo Jima on this date in 1945. The most legendary battle in Marine Corp history, Dickie Chapelle would arrive there before the fighting ended on 26 March.

Dickey, there is a story about you on the front of today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel telling of the fact that the Milwaukee Press Club will induct you into its hall of fame on October 24. When I was a student at Shorewood High School, you came to address the student body at an assembly. As I listened to you, I knew that I was in the presence of greatness. Thank you for all you did and for your sacrifice. Shorewood is proud of you. God bless. Rest in peace.

Invited in 1955 by the Marine Corps to cover the training a Marine goes through and to find out what "Esprit de Corps" means, she embraced the Marine Corps and embarked on a journey that would take her to the end. The Commandant of the Marine Corps would have a plaque placed on the spot where she fell in Vietnam that still stands today. It reads "She was one of us and she will be missed". She was said to have a gruff voice like that of a Marine Corp Drill Instructor and I think she would like being described in that way. She had a song written about her called "Pearls Eye View".

My father met you in Vietnam shortly before your death. He has spoken about you often and your death really affected him and the Marines you were with. Rest in peace. You are not forgotten.

In Mar 1945, she climbed to the top of the black lava sand dunes of Iwo Jima to get a look for herself at what is the most legendary battle in Marine Corps history. She returned to safety and commented about the incessant flies that kept buzzing around here. Someone then explained to her that there are no insects on Iwo Jima, those were sniper bullets.
