This is difficult to answer, due to the fact that the exact number of Allied slain on D-Day is still unknown. It is known, from first-hand witnesses, that there were a number of blacks that were pushed to the front lines. Thus, it is reasonable to guess at the possibility of at least eighty percent of those blacks who were there having been killed, as eighty percent has been cited as the mortality rate of Normandy landing parties.

Did American soldiers get awarded with any medals of honor for the battle of Iwo Jima?

No American soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor for the battle of Iwo Jima, largely because no American soldiers fought the battle of Iwo Jima. (Marines get really mad if you call them soldiers, and Iwo Jima was a Marine action.) Twenty-three Marines and four sailors earned the Medal of Honor for this battle. Fourteen of the Medals were earned posthumously--the recipient died doing his heroic action. Only eighty-two Marines earned the Medal in all of World War II.
