Dennis Blocker, grandson of a Gator sailer off the LCI 474 recently visited Washington DC and while there, visited the navy Archives and found some pictures of the LCI's that gave covering fire 17 February 1945 for the UDT Groups checking Iwo's beaches for the scheduled invasion two day's hence.
(Note Japanese shell landing off LCI 450' starboard bow)
