Last man in iconic Iwo Jima flag-raising photo dies - CNN.com The little flag, not the posed photograph. I can remember being very young and my dad taking me to DC. Saw the Tomb of the unknown Soldier, Kennedy, Lincoln memorials, Arlington Natl. Cemetary. But the one thing that I noticed, even as young as I was, the Iwo Jima memorial was special to him.
A generation is going, and every single loss is a shame. I share the same story as Stylie, the only thing that had more impact on me than the Marine Corp Memorial was the Lincoln Monument.
