USA: Marine Corps War Memorial

Last Tuesday I got five postcards: three from the USA and two from Japan.

One of the cards from the USA shows the Marine Corps War Memorial. The Marine Corps War Memorial was established in 1954. It is dedicated to all US Marine Corps personnel who died in the defense of the United States since 1775 and was inspired by an iconic photograph of six Marines raising a US flag during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.


Stamps:
Christmas (from set of two) (issued 31-10-1980)
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (two from set of four) (issued 06-11-2014)


Thank You very much Meredith!
