Yeah I am with you Stump. Even though I was not alive during WWII. I am a Marine so this still upsets me.

Did you open the link and see that ridiculous cover photo?

I can't believe they would disgrace such a national treasure as the rosenthal photo. They didn't use it as a model for the Marine Corp Memorial because it doesn't mean anything to Marines. My Grandma sent me the email, she was HOT!

I think this old salty Vet said it pretty good:



Lt. John Keith Wells, the leader of the platoon that raised the flags on Mt. Suribachi and co-author of “Give Me Fifty Marines Not Afraid to Die: Iwo Jima” wasn’t impressed with Time’s efforts.

“That global warming is the biggest joke I’ve ever known,” Wells told the Business & Media Institute. “[W]e’ll stick a dadgum tree up somebody’s rear if they want that and think that’s going to cure something.”
