"Marine Corps War Memorial" Iwo Jima Memorial - Marine Corps Tip by aero198

  Marine Corps War Memorial

I first saw this image in the movie "Iwo Jima"... when I saw it the first time in Washington I was impressed! It's the world's talles bronze statue. It stands 78 feet high.
The memorial is dedicated to the US marines, who captured the island of Iwo Jima in Japan, 1945. A large American flag was raised atop Mount Suribachi by these five marines...

Great Memorial :)

Directions: It's beside Arlington National Cemetery
