On this day in history, these Marines raised the flag on Iwo Jima where this famous photo was captured in 1945.
Only three of them made it off the island alive.
These six men left their famous mark in history, yet it somehow goes unnoticed on its 68th anniversary.
Hats off to you, Harlon Block, John "Doc" Bradley, Rene Gagnon, Franklin Sousley, Mike Strank, and Ira Hayes. (right to left)
