This famous photograph shows United States Marines raising the U. S. flag on Iwo Jima in WWII. The caption of the photo identified the soldier on the far left as “unknown”, later he was identified as Jack Thurman of Mitchell. When the photo was taken, Thurman was standing near the flag, the regiment asked him to join in the picture, as he was one of them, even though he was from another regiment. Thurman was wounded twice on Iwo Jima. (Photo courtesy of Carnegie Resource Center)
