This program is a replay of my interview with Leon Cooper and his passion for preserving the truth about this incredible assault against the Japanese by the United States Navy and the United States Marines. He was a part of the Navy forces that were in that horrific battle. Leon passed away in November, 2017 at the age of 98. His passion was honoring, remembering those whose bodies still rest within the island’s ground. This movie is about his life, the history of the island people, and more are discussed in this interview. Memorial Day is special and so was Leon. His legacy will live on through his movies and publications.
