World War II United States Marine. He was one of the six United States Marines who raised the first American flag on Mount Surabachi on Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945. This flag was later replaced by the flag in the famous flag raising photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal of the Associated Press. He was the last survivor of either group of flag raisers. (bio by: Erik Lander)
