USMC War Memorial

Arlington, Virginia

Created after a photograph captured in 1945 by news photographer Joe Rosenthal of Marines raising a flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima. This is a shot of the real Mt. Suribachi and where the flag was erected, captured during a special trip I was allowed by the Marine Corps to take to Iwo Jima in 2003.
