Description

When 11 Colorado World War II Veterans were stranded in Okinawa waiting to get to Iwo JIma for the 65th Anniversary of the historic and bloody battle, they called members of Congress and the military.  No one answered the call – except for Ed Perlmutter.  Perlmutter worked tirelessly with the White House, the Marines and the Japanese Embassy and the brave veterans were able to make it back in time for the ceremony.
