Iwo Jima Survivors event postponed

NEW HAVEN — The Iwo Jima Survivors’ third annual VJ Day Candlelight Ceremony of Remembrance, which was set for Aug. 14 , has been rescheduled for Aug. 20.

Except for the date, the details of the event are the same. It will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the National Iwo Jima Memorial Monument on Ella T. Grasso Boulevard.

Organizers postponed the event for a week because thunderstorms were expected Sunday.

Participants will be able to honor any service person who has died. The event is part of the National Spirit of ‘45 Day.
