"No one wanted to be a hero, but every mother's son was a hero". - John Connolly
So are the words of John Connolly, Navy Corpsman with the Marine Corps during World War II. John's inspirational story of service and survival before, during, and after one of the pivotal battles of World War II - Iwo Jima - will convince of the truth of this statement. For John, and so many like him who served in America and abroad during this epic chapter of our history, we second the belief that "every mother's son (and daughter) was a hero".
This is: "Connolly, a service story".
