Iwo Jima remembered

As a followup to my commemoration of the flag-raising at Mt. Suribachi, here is a New York Times article on the 60th anniversary commemoration of the battle for Iwo Jima by U.S. veterans and Japanese government officials. The article is also interesting because of its brief discussion of the differences in perception between Americans and Japanese on the battle, particularly in relationship to the Tokyo firebombing.
