Lou Lowery

Lou Lowery

Got a chance back in 1963 while stationed at Henderson Hall to meet Lou Lowery. He was kind enough to give me a autohgraphed copy of his famous picture. For years I never realized what a treasure I had. I have given copies to many former and active Marines and friends. It’s a shame he never got the real credit for taken the First picture on Iwo Jima. This the first time I’ve read your newsletter but am enjoying it very much. Plan on sending copies to sons and friends. Keep up the good work. Semper Fi
