    Iwo Jima memorial needs rescue mission

    A nonprofit "friends" group has formed to work with the National Park Service and Marine Corps representatives to raise funds to improve the Iwo Jima monument, which was dedicated in 1954 and pays tribute to U.S. Marines who have died in defense of the country since 1775.
