I am currently working in a Vetern's Home and taking care of a Marine who was on Iwo Jima.During one of our discussions he mentioned being at a flag raising on Iwo Jima.I can not mention his name here since he is under medical care and HIPPA prevents me from during so.Does anyone have a roster from the first flag raising?I believe that is the one He is refering to being part of.Thanks for your help.
