Marines Capture Iwo Jima - Save $2.50 on this 1945 FDC

One of the most iconic images of World War II was the Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima, site of one of the most brutal wartime battles, with over 20,000 casualties on each side during the 36-day conflict. A press photographer captured the moment six Marines raised the American flag on Mount Suribachi on February 23, 1945, becoming not only the most iconic image of the war but one of the most famous photographs in history.

The U.S. Post Office paid tribute to the efforts of the Marines in World War II with this stamp reproducing the famous photograph, the first of a series honoring all branches of the armed forces in the war.
