(Greeley, PA) – Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, is proud to introduce the 75th Anniversary Commemorative Iwo Jima Series.
After nearly four long years of fighting, members of the United States Marine Corps, Navy, Army, and Coast Guard had accomplished many seemingly insurmountable tasks. Yet in February of 1945, a battle lay before them that would go down in our nation’s history as one of the most difficult victories ever achieved. On the desolate volcanic atoll known as Iwo Jima, a new chapter was written in the history of the United States military–and in particular of the Marines, who fought tooth and nail for every inch of land against a suicidal foe.
Their victory will be forever remembered, immortalized in the famous photograph of the flag raising on Mount Suribachi. On this, the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima, Auto-Ordnance’s latest historical gun series honors all those who fought there. Each gun in the Iwo Jima tribute series is custom engraved with images commemorating the battle, and finished in durable Cerakote.
