US Marine Corps Memorial

Today is the 63rd anniversery of the historic photograph "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima." The photo was taken during the first few days of the Battle of Iwo Jima, which lasted between February 19 - March 26 1945. (See Wiki)

 

The US Marine Corps Memorial is modeled after this image. I felt today was a good day to post this.
