Iwo Jima Memorial

T received this postcard from Texas.

The postcard shows the Iwo Jima Memorial in Harlingen, Texas.  The sender wrote that, in person, the monument is huge!

This information is printed on the back of the postcard:

Created and donated by sculptor Felix de Weldon to the Marine Military Academy in 1981, this is the original working model prepared by him for the casting of the bronze in Washington, D.C.  This world-famous piece of art stands as a symbol of heroism of all American fighting men and determination of free people the world over.
~A perfectly patriotic postcard for the 4th of July weekend!
