Semper Fi!


Seventy years ago, Phil Ward of Crawfordsville, Ind. and six other Marines raised the first American flag atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima. The moment was recorded by Marine photographer Lou Lowery.

Seconds after the flag went up, they were greeted by cheers from the men below and by a chorus of horns and whistles from the ships lying offshore.

Semper Fi!
