Iwo Jima Day

On this date in 1945, five U.S. Marines and one Navy corpsman raised the American flag on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima.  Photographer Joe Rosenthal captured the moment in this famous photograph.

  1. Something was on the news recently about the original monument that had been stored away and recently uncovered. I think it is going to be auctioned off.
