70 years ago today, February 23, 1945, one of the most iconic photographs of WWII was taken of 5 Marines and one Corpsman raising the US flag on Mt. Suribachi during the battle for Iwo Jima.  The battle was one of the most costly in the history of the Marine Corp Рa battle where almost 4 out of 10 Americans were killed or wounded.

To the Marines and their Naval Corpsmen who fought the battle and to all Marines  past, present, and future РSemper Fi!
