In March of 1945, the Battle of Iwo Jima was fought between the United States and the Imperial Japan. After Mount Suribachi, a volcano on Iwo Jima, was captured by the Navy, six men raised the Flag of the United States. The Photo of this act became very popular and became the sample for the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Virginia.
