Battle of Iwo Jima- 70th Anniversary 02/19/1945

The Battle of Iwo Jima was a major battle in which the United States #Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.

Joe Rosenthal’s Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in this vintage graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist’s Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen.
