Today In History

On Feb. 23, 1945, Marines famously raised the U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima. One of those Marines was Cpl. Harlon Block of Weslaco, Texas. He was killed in action on March 1, 1945.

Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian helped raise that flag. His life had such a tragic ending. All gave some and some gave all.

the one with the picture , was the second raising , no one had a camera the first time so they did it again for the camera.

defiantly a lot to be proud of


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
