Some Americans remember the historical flag-raising by five Marines and one Navy Corpsman, but few will understand the epic battle for Iwo Jima that cost the United States 4,590 lives and wounded 24,096 Marines and Sailors.

Recently that appreciation manifested itself tangibly in a large, brand-new, flat-screen television for use in Millers' dining room, something which will benefit all residents as well as staff.
