Iwo Jima Memorial Addie Kamis C Block WC

• The United States Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) is a national monument located in Arlington County, Virginia, in the United States.
• The memorial was inspired by the iconic 1945 photograph taken by Associated Press photographer Jos Rosenthal capturing six Marines raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.
• If you walk around the monument, you will discover a listing of every Marine campaign since 1775 written in gold letters on the base. The monument is dedicated to every Marine who has died in combat since Nov. 10, 1775.
• The large cloth flag atop the 60-foot flagpole flies 24 hours a day, seven days a week by order of President John F. Kennedy.
• During the summer, the US Marine Corps holds Sunset Parades (A one hour performance featuring the music of "The Commandant's Own", The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps and precision drill by the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon) at the memorial on Tuesday evenings.
