72nd anniversary of six U.S. Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima

The Situation:

Today & this week is the 72nd anniversary of six U.S. Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima

Here is what our erudite Marine Corps Contributing Editor & a Real Mud Marine, Jim Thompson, sent us:

"The men from Easy (now Echo) Company 2nd Bn, 28th Marines, immortalized by the Rosenthal photos and subsequently by the Marine Corps War Memorial, were there by pure coincidence. Every man who served on Iwo Jima was a hero including my 3rd Bn, 9th Marines Dad. While we have always thought one of the six was Corpsman Bradley, the discovery that it was actually PFC Harold Schultz should not diminish the service that Bradley provided to ‘his’ Marines.

Why this Anniversary is Significant:

Some of what this is about is-- Why you should hire Marines coming off active duty whenever possible.

Consider that 2 Marine generals & an Army intellect are our best hope for the new presidency.

Visit this memorial this summer. We need more Marines running things. Semper Fi.

See a short video that tells the story of this historic day. _______________________________________________________________________________
