Mount Suribachi Photo

Mount Suribachi Photo

My story is more of a question. All your products just motivate the hell out of me! In 1982 I took a picture of mount suribachi from a CH-53 flying off the deck of the USS Peleliu. Our hop was to pick up mail being dropped off by a C-130 on Iwo Jima. I believe it to be divine providence that I took that picture. There is no other picture in existence like this one, as time and vegetation has slowly hiddened it’s scars. I believe this photo had to taken. I believe it compliments joe Rosenthal’s famous photo to a T! I would love to show it to Sgt. gritz as you are my brothers. And let me know what you think. I don’t know how to upload a picture but can email. If you do not reply no problem. But I do believe this picture should be kept in prosperity for all time to honor all who battled there.

    I am a Vietnam Veteran [68-69] would like to have the picture you took at Iwo. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania and we had a WWII Marine who had his heel blown off at Iwo. He never talked about his experience on the Island.
