On February 19th, 1945, the United States Marine Corps landed on the beaches of Iwo Jima. The USMC would fight for the next 36 days. The battle was a victory for the United States but came at a cost of over 26,000 American casualties. The key to success was the impeccable leadership and the valor of the American troops. Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz would go on to say, “Uncommon valor was a common virtue” at the Battle of Iwo Jima.
Only 75 of these engraved 1911 pistols will be made. Wellington LTD is proud to partner with the Marine Corps Association & Foundation (MCA&F). For every pistol sold, a donation will be made to the MCA&F. This donation will help support and continue the MCA&F mission.
On February 23rd, Joe Rosenthal took a photo of six Marines raising the American flag on the top of Mount Suribachi. 75 years later, this image is an icon of American bravery and strength. To honor those that fought, Wellington LTD is proud to introduce the Battle of Iwo Jima 75th Anniversary Pistol.
