Senator Rush Recognizes Iwo Jima Veterans at the State House

Senator Rush Recognized Iwo Jima Veterans at the State House
on February 22. According to the Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Section
12 AA requires that the Governor shall annually proclaim February 19th as
"Iwo Jima Day" and encourage the public to observe it accordingly.
For the past 13 years, The Marine Corps League has conducted an Iwo Jima Day
observance to honor our state's Iwo Jima Veterans. In addition to the ceremony,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Coleman Nee was presented with the “Semper
Fidelis Public Servant Award” and Jim Hastings was presented with the
"Gung Ho Community Service Award."
