For information on each flag raiser click here:

"The US National Iwo Jima Memorial is located on Ella Grasso Boulevard, near the New Britain/Newington town line in Connecticut. It was erected by the Iwo Jima Survivors Association, Inc. of Newington, Connecticut. It was dedicated on February 23, 1995 on the 50th anniversary of the historic flag raising on Iwo Jima. It is dedicated to the memory of the 6,821 US servicemen who gave their lives at Iwo Jima. Inscribed on the base are the names of the 100 men from Connecticut who gave their lives in the battle." (Wikipedia). I understand that this sculpture was created based on the original photograph of the second flag raising, not the Washington DC statue. The rocks, at the feet of the men raising the flag, are from the sight of the original flag raising at MT. SURIBACHI, IWO JIMA.
