IWO TO, Japan - Master Gunnery Sgt. Corey L. Croom, left, and his daughter Lance Cpl. Chesney A. Croom pose for a photo at the summit of Mount Suribachi April 11 during a professional military education tour to Iwo To, formerly known as Iwo Jima. “It’s surreal because, in 26 years, I never pictured myself getting an opportunity to even land on Iwo To,” said Corey Croom. “To experience this with my oldest daughter, who happens to be a lance corporal in the United States Marine Corps, is (even more unique).” Corey Croom is the operations noncommissioned officer in charge with Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 1, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, and Chesney Croom is a logistics embarkation clerk with MWHS-1, 1st MAW, III MEF.
