Through My Eyes Episode 3 // Ronald “Rondo” Scharfe //
You Better Not Burn The Flag If I’m Around
Imagine being only 16-years-old, storming the beaches of Iwo Jima. In this episode, we sit down with #WWII Navy Coxswain, Ronald ‘Rondo’ Scharfe. Just over 75 years later he can still speak to it like it was yesterday.
We had the privilege of taking Rondo back to Iwo Jima in 2019 for his first time back since 1945 when he steered that boat into a nightmare that still haunts him to this day. He told us amazing stories of heroism and valor, and we are thankful that there were young men like him who were willing to give everything for our freedom.
