Last Sunday marked the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic images in the United States: Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, shot by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Joe Rosenthal. The image which depicts a group of six marines raising the flag atop Mount Suribachi became a symbol of the Marine Corps while also serving as a reminder of the lives lost during World War II.
When the photo was shot on February 23, 1945, Iwo Jima had seen bloodshed for five days, as the United States, as well as Japan, suffered many casualties. By the time the war was over, over 25,000 lives had been collectively lost during the 36 days of the conflict.
Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima appeared on numerous newspapers throughout the United States shortly after it was shot. The photo earned such fame, it became the centerpiece of a prosperous war bonds campaign that included the six members of the service claimed to have snapped in the photo. Those men have since been identified and have rightfully earned their place in history.
