On 23 February 1945, the Marines took control of Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima. Onlookers cheered as the assault platoon fought to the summit and raised a small flag. Later that day, different troops raised a larger flag while others respectfully lowered the original. ⠀

Several combat photographers captured these stirring events on film, but Joe Rosenthal’s snapshot of the men struggling to raise the second flag in a stiff wind became an enduring symbol of American resolve. ⠀

Semper Fidelis⠀

MCRD PARRIS ISLAND, SC recreated the “Living Eagle, Globe and Anchor” for their centennial.
One hundred years ago in 1919, 100 officers and 9,000 enlisted Marines from Parris Island also created the official emblem and insignia of the Marine Corps. Thanks to @usmcarchives for finding this gem.
