A great friend of mine, Gerald Powers

before he died March 22, 2011, told me a story about the

Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington.

 

I hope you get as much out of the Memorial as I did.

 


SIX BOYS AND 13 HANDS


This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history - that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WWII.
