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.
