Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima is an iconic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. The photograph was first published in Sunday newspapers on February 25, 1945. It was extremely popular and was reprinted in thousands of publications. Later, it became the only photograph to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in the same year as its publication, and came to be regarded in the United States as one of the most significant and recognizable images of the war.

Three Marines depicted in the photograph, Sergeant Michael Strank, Corporal Harlon Block, and Private First Class Franklin Sousley were killed in action over the next few days. The three surviving flag-raisers were Corporals (then Private First Class) Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, and Harold Schultz, who first received Marine Corps recognition in June 2016.

The image was later used by Felix de Weldon to sculpt the Marine Corps War Memorial, which was dedicated in 1954 to all Marines who died for their country and is located in Arlington Ridge Park, near the Ord-Weitzel Gate to Arlington National Cemetery and the Netherlands Carillon.

The greatest generation!

By  Bill Munny

from Grand Ledge, MI

5.0

This statue reflects the true grit of America's greatest generation! Three of them didn't leave that little spit of island alive, but will live on in this exquisitely created silver statue, with details so vivid, you can see the determined expressions in their weary faces. There is nearly no physical contact between the soldiers bodies as they perform their top duty. Therefore, they look so life-like, I'm thinking they might come alive at night, eating eat my chips and drinking my whiskey as they guard my other silver statues! If this is so, they are welcome to it! Because, we might not have the freedom we love so much, if not for their brave sacrifices on Iwo Jima! Well worth the money!
