Flag Waving--Marine Charles Lindberg Dead at 86

Iwo_jima
The raising of the flag at Iwo Jima ensured the survival of the Marine Corps for another 200 years.



Within five weeks, over 6000 Marines had perished in a battle to occupy a small island that was named for the sulfur in it's bowels.  The taking of Iwo Jima allowed for the landing of planes and the continuation of the island hopping campaigns that eventually lead to the defeat of Japanese Imperial forces. 

Semper Fi,

Sgt. Lindberg    



Thanks Michelle
