Six members of the Marine Corps League, Gaffney-Oglesby Detachment 1328 traveled to Sacaton, AZ on February 24 to participate in the annual parade which honors Marine Ira Hayes and the historic flag raising on Iwo Jima. Marines Ben Collins, Robert Lopez, Sean Wells and Bob Schloss marched carrying the American flag and rifles while Don Spann and Frank Donohue followed in Don's WWII-era Willys Jeep. This year marked the seventy-third anniversary of the Iwo Jima flag raising but league members have been taking part in the tradition for nearly ten years. Though the league members who attend vary each year, the reason for attending is still the same for all of them—honoring one of their own.
