Ed Krohn (inset) enlisted in the Marines right after graduating from Riverside High School in Milwaukee in 1943 and was assigned to an artillery squad. He was wounded on Iwo Jima in 1945.

"We weren't thinking about memorials over there. We were thinking about coming home, civilian life, raising a family."
- Ed Krohn, 79, of Brown Deer, who fought on Iwo Jima in 1945
