TCU flag at Iwo Jima

April 15, 2014

Major Ryan D. Cox ’02 of the U.S. Air Force visited the Japanese island of Iwo Jima earlier this year, and he brought a TCU flag with him.

But it was no ordinary spot for a flag photo.

“We hiked up to the top of Mount Suribachi, which is the location of the famous raising of the U.S. flag at the battle of Iwo Jima during World War II,” Cox wrote to us. “I
was at the actual spot where the flag was raised.”

Behind him, is the beach on which U.S. Marines landed and bravely fought to take the island.

“The opportunity to go to Iwo Jima is rare since no civilians of any kind are even allowed to visit the island,” Cox shared. “Truly a great experience!”

Cox, who is a former member of TCU Cheer, is stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan.

Frog medical interpreter in Afghanistan

Haroon Said Wardak ’13 graduated from TCU’s Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences less than a year ago, but he’s showing his Horned Frog pride with passion on the other side of the globe.

Wardak, who describes himself as an Afghan-American “with purple blood in my veins,” is a medical interpreter/translator for U.S. military forces in Afghanistan. He also works in a NATO hospital there.

When he was deployed, he took along several TCU t-shirts. But he wanted something to show off his Horned Frog ties every day. So he bought a TCU ID tag holder from Amazon.

In the photo above, Wardak is proudly donning the TCU ID tag during formal Change of Command Ceremony at Multinational Medical Unit-NATO Hospital in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
