Do you know what the American Legion, Iwo Jima Memorial & Marine Corps Museum Have in Common?”

You may be surprised to learn all three share an important anniversary on November 10th. Read below to learn more about these three newsworthy items, as well as other interesting facts that happened on November 10th.

1919 – The first national convention of the American Legion is held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, ending on November 12.

1954 – U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower dedicates the USMC War Memorial (Iwo Jima memorial) in Arlington National Cemetery.

1975 – The 729-foot-long freighter SS Edmund Fitzgerald sinks during a storm on Lake Superior, killing all 29 crew on board.

1989  – German citizens begin to bring the Berlin Wall down

2006 – The National Museum of the Marine Corps opens in Quantico, Virginia. U.S. President George W. Bush dedicated the Museum, and simultaneously announced that Marine Corporal Jason Dunham would receive the Medal of Honor. Dunham’s unit was attacked by grenade while on patrol in Husaybah. Dunham deliberately covered an enemy grenade to save fellow Marines. He died from his injuries eight days later.

As we observe Veterans Day, I thank all those who served our country and the ideals of democracy world-wide. God bless you.

See video of late President Ronald Reagan's prayer for Veterans Day here.  

Read about America’s oldest living veteran, 107-year-old Richard Overton, and what’s responsible for his longevity-"Staying out of trouble".

While these interesting facts about American Legion, Iwo Jima Memorial & Marine Corps Museum on November 10th, have nothing to do with my real estate business selling homes to families in San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga in Silicon Valley, Calif., they sure do add fun and entertainment to life.
