From the book, A Fellowship Of Valor, by Col Joseph H. Alexander, USMC Ret, 1997, Harper Collins, we learn the following regarding the flag raising in Seoul, Korea on 27 Spetember, 1950...

"An envious Army officer from Almond's staff chided Chesty Puller: 'Ever since that flag-raising picture on Iwo Jima got published, I'm convinced you Marines would rather carry a flag into battle than a weapon.' Puller regarded the man icily, 'Not a bad idea,' he growled, 'a man with a flag in his pack and the desire to run it up on an enemy position isn't likely to bug out!'"
