I have found that "family" around you is a product of twists of fate, world events and personal decisions made long ago. Anguish, happiness, despair and harmony. The effect of war on families and the resulting peace from the untold sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation. While I am not a writer, I hope to be able to bring to light the spontaneity of life. As I wish to be historically accurate, some quotes will be as I heard them...but there was no malice coming from those that spoke those words. They were reliving the past horrors of war - a war that you nor I fought in. They did.

Honor Their Young, Brief Lives


This story was written what seems a million years ago.

It only matters to honor that six young men raised the second flag on Iwo Jima. It was simply the U.S. Marine Corps.

Through the fog of war though, as Mustang of Fix Bayonets told me several times, facts are lost, clouded by pressure of the times, sentiment and politics. As examples, Pfc. Rene Gagnon and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class John Bradley were misidentified as being in the iconic Joe Rosenthal photo. Only Pfc. Ira Hayes was correctly identified.

Factually, Pfc. Harold Schultz – who quietly passed away in Los Angeles in 1995 – was one of the six flag raisers. He kept silent. If my failing memory serves me correctly, Mustang has a signed photograph from Pfc. Harold Schultz.

I believe he was the last living person who was atop Mt. Suribachi in 1945. So sad…

But USMC Sgt. William Homer Genaust filmed the iconic second flag raising atop Mt. Suribachi in 1945 alongside Joe Rosenthal. He never got to see his work. He is still there, unrecovered after being KIA in a cave.

Honor their memories.

Watch “US Marines raise American flag on top of Mount Suribachi in Iwo Jima, Japan durin…HD Stock Footage”


This is the only movie ever taken atop Mt. Suribachi 77 years ago today.

In color even.

The Marine who filmed this – Sgt William Homer Genaust – never got to see it.

He is still there on the northern end of the island after being KIA in a cave five days later. His body was never recovered.

In Two Days…


In two days – 77 years ago – the two flag raisings occurred atop “Hot Rocks”, or Mt. Suribachi.

Through the fog of war, several Marines were misidentified.

Again, through the fog of war, the LAST of the Marines who participated in BOTH flag raisings was Pfc. Harold Schulz.

God bless those young boys and men of 77 years ago.
