Mel Wayne: WWII veteran, The Battle of Iwo Jima


On this Independence Day, we pause to honor one of the many veterans who helped preserve our freedoms.

KGET Reporter Tabatha Mills introduces us to Mel Wayne, a local World War II veteran who was stationed on Iwo Jima. Much like many of his fellow veterans, he didn’t do it for the glory, he did it for his country. 

Happy Fourth of July and thank you to all our veterans for your service.
