love_spirit_mind_body ️ "Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it."
~John Adams,
A letter to Abigail Adams; Philadelphia, Saturday evening, 26 April, 1777 "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima"
is a historic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a United States Navy corpsman raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi, during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. The photograph was extremely popular, being reprinted in thousands of publications. Later, it became the only photograph to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in the same year as its publication, and came to be regarded in the United States as one of the most significant and recognizable images of the war, and quite possibly the most reproduced photograph of all time. Three Marines depicted in the photograph,
"Harlon Block,
Franklin Sousley,️and Michael Strank, ️were killed in action over the next few days."
"The three surviving flag-raisers were Marines Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, and Navy Corpsman John Bradley. The latter three became celebrities after their identifications in the photograph. Hope More people take the Opportunity to Acknowledge Family, Friends, and All who have Fallen for the Freedom we All share Today!!! From April 19, 1775 – The Present Date of May 25th 2015!
Thank You All, For Most of Us Will Never Know The Price You Paid To Preserve Our Freedom Today!
I Honor All of You, For You Are My Hero's! #memorialday #worldwar2 #Iwojima #pacificocean #american #marines #armedforces #koreanwar #vietnam #iraq #afghanistan #war #peace #yinyang #photograph

lyssbro22 after spending the morning at the best parade in the valley with friends and family, I take a step back. Today marks 13 years since you've been gone and I'll never forget that morning. I don't need a special day for say thanks for the troops & past Vets. I pray for them everyday. Today I remember you as a hardworking, skillful, strong, incredible man and I hope and pray you're proud of me. Love & miss you so much Papa.

milley_vanilly Happy Memorial Day!! God Bless all those that have served to protect our freedom & our powerful nation! ~RIP~ to my Grandfather who helped to train our Nation's Fighter Pilots & our Bomber Planes during WWII. He lost his hearing from a jet turbine exploding during a training exercise, but due to modern medical advancements he was able to undergo some surgeries to hear our voices again in one of his ears!
I have so much respect for the sacrifices this man had made to care for my mother & her sisters. He had three separate wives die in his caring arms from cancer, and still managed to push forward to operate our families 12,000 acre farm in Illinois until his last few months of life.
This picture right here was taken on our last vacation together in Elmwood, IL at a World War 2 memorial in the middle of the downtown. He is standing tall proudly pointing out his full name on the plaque to our whole family! I love this man & what he has done to provide for our whole family, his spirit will live on through our farmland forever ~ 🏼️🏼 #MemorialDay #RememberingLovedOnes #WorldWar2 #FighterPilot #Elmwood #Illinois #Farmland #Family #Love #RIPgrandpa #OneLove

weaponxmusic On this #memorialday2015, please take some time to think of and thank those who sacrificed themselves to fight for this country. However you feel about our gov't and our #military actions, the troops themselves need & deserve our support. They are #Americans trying to do their best, just like you and I. #honorthefallen #supportourtroops #veterans #soldiers #sailors #airmen #marines #army #navy #marines #airforce #coastguard #america #landofthefree #homeofthebrave #starsandstripes #worldwar2 24min
