                                                     Dear SPOHP Supporter,

                                                          This past year has been a time of increasing
                                                     activity and visibility for SPOHP. Our staff members
                                                     have conducted a wide range of significant oral
                                                     history interviews. We have gathered histories
                                                     from veterans of the Civil Rights Movement in the
                                                     Mississippi Delta, retiring UF service workers, and
                                                     key policymakers in Florida’s Water Management
                                                     districts. We are creating a series of podcasts that
                                                     will bring the remarkable diversity and richness
                                                     of our histories to newer audiences outside the
                                                     University of Florida’s venue.

                                                          In honor of Veterans Day, SPOHP presented a
                                                     program titled “Testimony of War,” which featured
                                                     the premiere of the program’s groundbreaking
                                                     documentary titled I Just Wanted to Live! This
                                                     film presented the experiences of four American
                                                     survivors of the Bataan Death March. It was based
                                                     on four oral histories in our outstanding World
                                                     War II Collection. We took these gripping interviews
                                                     off the archival shelves and reformatted them into
                                                     visual history. The movie was followed by a panel
                                                     discussion of four area veterans detailing their
                                                     experiences in both theaters of war.

                                                        Our next public program on March 17 will be

      “Rosewood” is a name that for many in
 our state conjures up vivid memories of a dark
 episode in Florida’s history. The “Rosewood

                      Iwo Jima Veterans Honor SPOHP
                                                By Diane Fischler

   February 19, 1945, is a date remembered by thousands of Marines who landed on the remote volcanic
sands of Iwo Jima. More than half a century later, Marine veterans who lived through the horrors of that
month-long battle still have graphic memories of the intense fighting on the island.


    On February 19, the “Iwo Trio,” one of Gainesville’s many veterans’ organizations, commemorated the
64 anniversary of the landing. The event was held at a restaurant where Iwo veterans gather every month
  th


to reminisce about their experiences on Iwo Jima and in other battles during the Pacific campaign.


   This year the Iwo Trio, consisting of Clif Cormier, Clair C. Chaffin, and Bob Gasche, decided to hold their
February lunch gathering on the actual anniversary. The commemoration turned into a public event to
remember the casualties of war, to explain the reasons for the invasion, and to understand why Iwo Jima
should not be forgotten.


    Three colorful posters, prepared by the Oral History Program, provided some context for the
presentations by showing why taking this island—a mere eight-square-mile speck in the Pacific—was so vital
to winning the war. One showed the overall Pacific Theater of Operations, making clear the great extent of
Japanese territorial incursions and tracking the Allied advances from Midway to Okinawa. A larger poster of

 the island showed where the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Marine divisions landed. The advancing troops did
 not realize that 22,000 Japanese troops were holed up in 17 miles of underground fortifications and were
 ready to die to the last man, according to their Bushido Code.


      The most famous photo to come out of World War II is reflected in the third poster: the second flag
 raising on Mount Suribachi on February 23. Clif Cormier spoke about one of the reasons this poster was
 so meaningful to the Marines: The fame that the flag raising brought to the Marines and their role in that
 battle saved the Marine Corps from being eliminated as an independent branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
 Secretary of the Navy James V. Forrestal, watching the flag raising from an offshore ship, said, “The raising
 of that flag on Suribachi means a Marine Corps for the next 500 years.”


     Of the 22,000 Japanese troops defending Iwo Jima, only 216 surrendered or were captured. The
 remainder of enemy troops died in combat or committed suicide. Of the 110,000 Marines trying to take
 the island, 6,800 were killed and 20,000 were wounded or missing. One of the most famous quotations
 of World War II came from Admiral Chester A. Nimitz on March 16, 1945, when Iwo Jima was declared
 “secure”: “Among the Americans serving on Iwo island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.”


      During the commemoration, the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program was presented with a certificate
 thanking the program for its continued support of the Iwo Trio organization. SPOHP has these veterans’
 oral histories on file, and two of the members participated in the “Testimony of War” panel discussion
 last November, offering riveting descriptions of their Iwo Jima experiences. It is an honor for SPOHP to be
 affiliated with these veterans.
