I just read over at Coalition of the Swilling
that photographer Joe Rosenthal has passed away. Mr. Rosenthal, as you know, took the famous photograph of the Marines raising the flag on top of Mount Suribachi during the battle for Iwo Jima.

One of the best books I’ve read about that campaign and that picture is Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley. James Bradley's father John is the Navy corpsman in that picture. If you have not read this, I highly recommend it.

Godspeed, Mr. Rosenthal.
