This Day in History: Flag Raised Over Iwo Jima! Feb 23, 1945!

2-23-16 3:50 PM EST: "During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. Marine photographer Louis Lowery was with them and recorded the event. American soldiers fighting for control of Suribachi’s slopes cheered the raising of the flag, and several hours later more Marines headed up to the crest with a larger flag. Joe Rosenthal, a photographer with the Associated Press, met them along the way and recorded the raising of the second flag along with a Marine still photographer and a motion-picture cameraman.

Mark Levin: Ronald Reagan When Iran Assaulted U.S. Navy Ship!

1-15-16 2:00 PM EST: Mark Levin refers to an article on a fairly new website he mentions in this audio clip. No doubt they're very pleased about that.  But the article and subsequent commentary he adds takes the response of Ronald Reagan to Iranian aggression and places it as an exhibit next to Obama's surrender this past week when sailors were actually captured and held. It's the type of subject that might bring on that love it, hate it at the same time, mixed emotion.

Welcome Home to WWII Vets, by the U.S. National Archives!

1-26-16 7:12 PM EST: Just finished watching this film from immediate post WWII. It was released and uploaded to YouTube yesterday. It's about the young people who went off to fight WWII. Your parents, grand parents, and great grand parents. It's about many of the things they went through, the hardships they bore, and their return home to a grateful country trying it's best to both welcome and show them how proud it was of them. Job well done.
