In Disguise
Aug 2, 2006
Mr. Rosenthal I salute you for your patriotism and one of the greatest photos ever taken by a man with a camera about WWII because in that instant the people of America for that era knew that we could stand up taller, sit up straighter, hold up our heads higher and believe that the war was going well for America and in good time victory was within our grasps.

Rest now your legacy will forever reach us through that wonderful portrait of the brave Marines who took a hill in Iwo Jima and claimed it for America by placing the stars and stripes of old glory for the world to see that America has the strength and courage to fight and see freedom ring in the ears of every man, woman and child in America.

Thank you Mr. Rosenthal I salute you.
