Happy Birthday Marines!!!

Happy 237th Birthday Marines!!! Semper Fidelis!!! For those who don't know me, I am Retired Marine and i am well aware that there were two flag raising's. For those who don't know the version that is most common is the one that I posted, Joe Rosenthal's photographed one. It happened on Feb 23rd 1945. Just 4 days after the initial landing Feb 19th 1945. There was still another month of hard fighting before the island was secured.
