iwo jima 1

The U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial. The statue is based on a photograph taken during the battle of Iwo Jima, during World War II--original photo taken by Joe Rosenthal, an Associated Press photographer. Rosenthal's photo was taken as Marines raised a flag after taking Mount Suribachi on 23 February 1945.
