@reconsniperfoundation (@onerepost) ・・・ There are six Flag Raisers on the famous Iwo Jima photo. Four in the front line and two in back. The front four are (left to right) Ira Hayes, Franklin Sousley, Harold Schultz and Harlon Block. The back two are Michael Strank (behind Sousley) and Rene Gagnon (behind Schultz). Strank, Block and Sousley would die shortly afterwards. #recon #sniper #sarc #reconman #scoutsniper #specialamphibiousreconnaissancecorpsman #Repost @havokjournal ・・・ One of the hardest fought victories of the Battle of Iwo Jima was the capture of Mount Suribachi, a southern volcano on the island, 74 years ago today. Many say it was the raising of the American flag on the volcano that inspired US troops to persevere and eventually overcome the Japanese Imperial Army on Iwo Jima. The losses involved were heavy. US forces counted roughly 20,000 casualties. One of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theatre of World War II. #wwii #marines #america #iwojima #warishell #freedomisntfree #neverforgotten #havokjournal #voiceforveterans #storyteller #usmilitary

#Repost @worldwar2_collector (@get_repost) ・・・ Pointe du Hoc, then and now. —— By mid-1944, German forces manned formidable defenses along the French coast. Of concern to the Allies were German 155mm artillery positions on Pointe du Hoc. They could wreak havoc on Utah and Omaha Beaches. Lt. Col. James E. Rudder, commanding the 2nd Ranger Battalion, received the mission to land at 6:30 a.m., scale the 100 foot cliffs, and disable the German positions. Lt. Col. Max F. Schneider’s 5th Ranger Battalion would follow and reinforce them. The Germans had previously moved the guns southward from their initial prepared positions. Despite fierce resistance, Rangers found and destroyed the guns pushing onward to cut the highway south of Pointe du Hoc. June 6-8: After fighting two days, only about 90 Rangers stood when relieved by Schneider’s Rangers and the 29th Division from Omaha Beach. -------------------------------------------- Make sure you follow my crew: @project1944 @Antsww2_militaria @Historywarblog_ww2 @Relics_of_the_reich @Heritagemaps @intelligence_bunker @legendaryfirearms @that40skid @_loveandwar_ @modern_combat_history -------------------------------------------- Photo: @dday_history Source: abmc.gov . . . . . #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #secondworldwar #history #historiansunion #worldwarii #war #military #army #nowandthen #thenandnow #pointeduhoc #normandy #normandie #france #lafrance #french #cliff #cliffs #rocks #rangers #coast #oma#omahabeach #dday #utah #omaha #guns

74 years ago today the Marines raised our Nations Colors on top Mt Suribachi, for all to see. I’ve talked to men who saw that historic moment, and when they explain it. It’s a feeling we don’t understand, because it was something that had to be witnessed. After the brutal and intense fighting that had taken place before hand, the Flag raising was a sign of Hope and Accomplishment for our service members watching from ashore or on ship. The fighting wasn’t over, and would continue well into March. But I imagine the Japanese knew the Marines were there, and were there till the Mission was completed fully. You can see the Marine Holding the M-1 which is what rifle I have next to the photo. The Japanese headband in the right of the photo is a piece I bought at an antique store that was brought back from the Pacific Theater. #marine #usmc #combat #veteran #grunt #doghandler #wwii #iwojima #fla#flaging #flag #greatestgeneration Note: I don’t know what that headband say, but it’s a piece of history that was brought back from someone who was there.
