On February 23rd, 1945, 5 Marines and 1 Navy Corpsman raised the American flag. They were doing what they were ordered to, but their deed has become the most memorable images not only of WWII but also of the USMC. Remember not only those who have fought, but those who continue to fight today. God bless our troops.
My son the Marine is having a hard time of his own tonight. I hope he’ll be strong. We’re so proud of him.
