Woody Williams remembers the Battle of Iwo Jima – Part 2

Battle of Iwo Jima (Part 2): Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams recalls landing on Iwo Jima and running from impact crater to impact crater as his unit made its way across their first objective on the island.

“Our job was to take the first airfield, secure it, and then keep going North,” he said. “There was no protection on the airfield. All we had were some shell craters …” This six-part series will be released on VA’s social media channels every Tuesday through March 26.
