    It's been 65 years today since the flag raising on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima that was caught in Joe Rosenthal's famous photo.

    65 years later the Marines are still fighting, just on a different battlefield.

    All Marines hold the history of Iwo and the Corps sacred in their hearts. Standing in front of the statue at Arlington gave me such goose bumps.

    Semper Fi to all my brothers!

    handlepuller Great thread really appropriate that those enjoy the freedoms of this great country. Take a little time to remember those that gave so much for the rest of us.

    Iwo Jima was one of the bloodiest battle of WWII and way to many of our Marines died taking that Island. Lets not forget.
