The First Flag Raisers on Iwo Jima





Betty Michels McMahon, daughter of Jimmy Michels, attended a Pillars of Honor program today in Forest Park, IL, in memory of her father, a man who had been part of the first group of marines to raise a flag on Iwo Jima.  She shared some photos of that momentous date which I now share with you.
