Possibly one of the most iconic photographs taken of the US Army by Joe Rosenthal of the Associated Press. This is in fact the second raising of the flag on Mount Suribachi, the first of which occurred earlier in the day, with a much smaller flag. Incredibly, the fighting between the US Army and the Imperial Japanese Army would not cease for another month. I've been wanting to do this particular photograph for many years after seeing several colorized versions online. My version heavily references Sergeant Genaust's second flag raising, who filmed it in motion picture standing next to Rosenthal as the replacement – and much larger Stars and Stripes, taken from the landing ship LST-779 – was raised over Iwo Jima. – Jordan J. Lloyd

"Into the Jaws of Death - U.S. Troops wading through water and Nazi gunfire. American invaders spring from the ramp of a Coast Guard-manned landing barge to wade those last perilous yards to the beach of Normandy. Enemy fire will cut some of them down. Their 'taxi' will pull itself off the sands and dash back to a Coast Guard manned transport for more passengers."
