Today in history

Thanks to Tara Ross:

On this day in 1945, United States Marines raise an American flag atop Mount Suribachi, during the bloody WWII Battle of Iwo Jima.

The flag they raised was actually the second American flag raised on the peak that day, but a photographer from the Associated Press captured the moment, making it famous.

Many thanks to the men and women who serve this great land of ours!
