Inscription.  
And when the 5th Division entered combat, it acted from the first hour like a unit of veterans. It fought that first tough fight with the utmost vigor, courage, and intelligence. Few times in history has a force kept fighting in the face of losses such as our division suffered on Iwo Jima. The division followed attack with attack. It continued to assault the heavy resistance of a desperate enemy—until the last small pocket on the island was overcome.

As a single member of the 5th Marine Division who was given the great privilege of leading it in training and battle, I here join with all other veterans of the 5th in tribute to the Spearhead.
