Legion Riders Post 7 Tucson at Iwo Jima 70th Anniversary in Sacaton

Tucson, AZ

Legion Riders from all over Arizona took to the highways on a chilly February morning headed to Sacaton, Arizona, to help commemorate the 70th anniversary of Iwo Jima and celebrate one of our own heroes - Ira H. Hayes, U.S. Marine.

Hayes, of Sacaton, was one of the six flag raisers immortalized in the iconic photograph of the flag raising on Iwo Jima during World War II. It's an event we look forward to every year and a way to honor those who went before us and sacrificed so that we might enjoy the freedoms we have. These are a few of our own Tucson American Legion Post 7 Marines posing with one of the many parade participants!
