Seventy-four years ago today, six U.S. Marines raised a U.S. flag on Iwo Jima two days into the battle creating one of the most iconic images of WW II. There would be 33 more days of fighting before the island was captured; the actions taken during the battle would earn more Congressional Medals of Honor (27) than any other battle in U.S. history. How else you can explain this feat except that all these men were connected to and motivated by something bigger than themselves? The PAX who showed up that morning (FNG Trench, Joker, Kodak, Ladybug, MaryLou, Mimbo, Noonan, and Homer taking the Q) posted for the same reason.
