In an old scrapbook, I came across a letter thanking my grandpa for being a part of the 1949 film "Sands of Iwo Jima". It is personally signed by the director Allan Dwan, the producer, and John Wayned himself! The letter is from Republic Productions Inc. which was the studio behind the film.

As a marine, my grandpa was in the 1st Tank Battalion and drove tanks as an extra. I also have some awesome black & white behind the scenes photos from the shoot.

Being obsessed with film myself, this was a crazy find, and I just thought I would share. You can read the letter on my Instagram and I will post the pictures soon. Thanks!
