Sixty years ago today,this photo by Joe Rosenthal of the Associated Press was taken as a flag was raised over Iwo Jima. This is actually the second larger flag being raised on Mount Suribachi after days of bloody battle. The war in the Pacific raged on but this photograph became an indelible part of American history. It is also commemorated as the United States Marine Corps War Memorial in Washington D.C.
