74 Years Ago, Marines On Iwo Jima Raised The Flag

Recommended Posts

Not one of them was the orignal Bunch that did raise the Flag that day ,but like so much History, our Goverment gives us, is doctored up, or lies. There were guys that raised the Flag but it was eariler in the day, and there were about 18  guys that were there gathered at the base of the flag, not what you are shown ,how do I know? I had a cousin there, and I have a picture of the orignal bunch that was there, but what ever, just thought I would kick that in, because so many times the people that do the work never get the credit for it ,such as in this case ,it was more important to sell to the public ,so they could sell more War Bonds ,did you notice that the uniforms the soldiers are wearing look brand new ,not a wrinkle not dirty you might say picture perfect ????? thats if you been in battle you dont look pristine. I am not looking to argue just trying to set the record right.

And it was a smaller flag too.
