Looking for information on activities of World War 2 Marine troop lander LSM 5 in Pacific.

Father was on board LSM 5 in Pacific. We have heard that he might have been at Iwo Jima but not sure of the ship's activities or father's. Would like to find more information. Info has been hard to find. 

Thanks
