The US flag is raised over the Marine Co

The US flag is raised over the Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington, Virginia on February 23, 2009 during an event honoring veterans of the Battle of Iwo Jima. On February 23, 1945, US Marines seized Mount Suribachi, the highest point of Iwo Jima Island. This major victory at the Battle of Iwo Jima secured a valuable aircraft base for the US and was a sign of impending defeat for Japan in World War II. Marines on Iwo Jima captured Mount Suribachi, where they raised the American flag twice. (The second flag-raising was captured in the iconic photo of the raising of the Flag on Iwo Jima by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal.) The design of the massive sculpture by Felix de Weldon was based on that photo. AFP PHOTO/ TIM SLOAN (Photo credit should read TIM SLOAN/AFP via Getty Images)
