    Notice: NASP smoke
  testing stormwater lines
    NAS Pensacola is conducting a smoke test of its
 stormwater system.
    Work crews will be on base starting March 1 and will
 finish with smoke testing by May 1. A “smoke test” sur-
 vey will assist inspection crews in locating connections
 and defects in the stormwater system.
    The smoke you may see coming from manholes, curb
 inlets or holes in the ground is non-toxic, non-staining,
 has low odor, is white to gray in color and creates no fire
    The smoke should not enter your building unless you
 have defective plumbing. If you discover smoke in your
 building, contact your building manager.
    Important: If there is any individual in your building                                                  ,

  “The battle of Iwo island has been won ... By their victory, the Third, Fourth and Fifth Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their
  country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans who served on Iwo island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.” — Adm. Chester W. Nimitz

      wo Jima, which means “Sulfur
      Island,” was strategically impor-
      tant as an air base for fighter
escorts supporting long-range bombing
missions against mainland Japan.
   Because of the distance between mainland Japan and
U.S. bases in the Mariana Islands, the capture of Iwo Jima
would provide an emergency landing strip for crippled B-
29s returning from bombing runs. The seizure of Iwo
would allow for sea and air blockades, the ability to con-
duct intensive air bombardment and to destroy the
enemy’s air and naval capabilities.
   To the Japanese leadership, the capture of Iwo Jima
meant the battle for Okinawa, and the invasion of Japan
itself, was not far off.                                        Going ashore: Fourth Division Marines begin an attack from the beach on Iwo Jima, as another boatload of men land
