One of the things I have learned that was critical for why the Americans took the Island of Iwo Jima was that the soldiers worked together as a team.
Here are a few examples of how teamwork was carried out during the battle:
First, the sailors took the Marines onto the shore.
Next, the Marines secured the Island for the Seabees.
Then, the Seabees made the runways for the airplanes.
With the runways in place, the fighter pilots were able to defend Iwo from air attacks from the Japanese. Also, the pilots had a base to escort B-29s in their fire-bombing raids.
This concludes my summary on what it means to work together. Again, the lesson we learn is this: if you want to accomplish a goal like conquering Iwo Jima, you need to work as a TEAM!!
