Iwo Jima memories from 69 yers ago - EdwardTeach
When my thoughts turn to Iwo Jima 69 years ago, memories of three events stand out. Of course, one is observing the American flag go up on Mt. Suribachi, go down and be raised again. We had no idea at the time that Joseph Rosenthal's picture of the flag raising would become famous. I will always...
