. Iwo Jima - The First Flag

"Iwo Jima - The First Flag"  -  A painting by artist Ron Stark

.

February 23, 1945 . . . Atop volcanic Mount Suribachi, Marines of Easy Company, 28th Regiment, 5th Marine Division, hoist the first American flag over Iwo Jima.  As Old Glory breaks the skyline, a tremendous roar of shouts and whistles will emerge from the Marines on the beaches and the sailors at sea. Later, this flag will be lowered and  a replacement raised. Although a photo of the second flag would be cherished by the home front, the first flag belonged to the heroes of Iwo Jima.
