Up, Together

Another image of the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, otherwise known as Iwo Jima. The detail of this statue is incredible--even the knuckles on their hands are defined. Focusing on their hands working together to raise the American flag on Mount Suribachi explains why this was such a compelling image of World War II and the kinship, struggle and sacrifice of American men and women who served in the Pacific and beyond.
