I'm sure quite a few of you remember the stories I shared a while back (2 years now!) about my saturday mornings at a local donut shop here in the DFW area, and about how I met a spry elderly gentleman, who was a veteran of the battle of Iwo Jima... He let me know more than anything he wanted to return to the island one last time...

Yesterday morning Don returned to Iwo Jima...

I knew you guys would want to know! =)
