Colonel Chandler Johnson:
Our target, Island X, is an ugly, smelly, dirty little scab of rock called Iwo Jima. It means "Sulfur Island," which accounts for the smell. Looks sort of like a burnt pork chop if you ask me. After twenty straight days of bombing, you won't find a blade of grass or a twig on it. It wasn't that pretty to start with.

Transcript:
Our target, Island X. . . . . . is an ugly, smelly, dirty little scab of rock called Iwo Jima. It means Sulfur Island, which accounts for the smell. Looks sort of like a burnt pork chop, you ask me. After 20 straight days of bombing you won't find a blade of grass. . . . . .or a twig on it. It wasn't that pretty to start with. Captain? Iwo's just five and a half miles long, two and a half wide. There's a lump down at the bottom. That's Mount Suribachi. On the maps in front of you the island is white. Not much of it. The black dots represent known enemy emplacements. Coastal defense guns, dual-mount dual- purpose guns, covered artillery. Rifle pits, foxholes, antitank guns. . . . . . machine guns, blockhouses, pillboxes, and earth-covered structures. I don't see any barracks or any other structures. That's right. And we still don't know why. Now, this isn't just any island to them. This isn't Tarawa, Guam, Tinian, or Saipan.
