 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
The first portions of the 28th Marines landed on Iwo Jima at Green Beach just after 9:00 AM on 19 February 1945. 1/28 and 2/28 were first ashore and within 90 minutes of hitting the beach small units from these battalions had reached the west coast of the island. 3/28 was fully ashore by 1300 that afternoon, having taken heavy casualties in the water and while crossing the beach. By late in the afternoon the regiment had isolated Mount Suribachi and began to commence its attacks south against the defenders of the island redoubt. The 28th Marines were the only of the four regiments that landed on D-Day to achieve their objectives.

Pvt James Hope died on the first day of the Battle of Iwo Jima.
