They didn't pose for a picture, they were in the process of putting up a second, larger flag and that moment was captured on film.
That wasn't the end of the battle, three of those Marines were killed before it was all over.

Quote of Admiral Nimitz :"Uncommon valor was a common virtue", referencing Marine combat bravery on Iwo !
27 medals of honor awarded for actions during this horrific battle, I believe 5 were earned by Navy personell. Semper FI and God bless those who served, and those who continue to selflessly serve !!

I didn't know that. Somehow, for me that knowledge adds to the significance of that photo.

My thanks to those who serve feels impotent but it's heartfelt nonetheless.
