Hay, It is ok. I don't mean to be rude, but this is an important event to me, so if I make a suggestion. There were actually 6 people raising the flag. (5 US Marines, and 1 Navy officer) It is pretty good, and I like your other creations, but if you could add the extra people, it would be one of the better scenes I've seen. I just had to make that comment because this is important to me. I'm a huge NAVY person. I'm building the WWII Memorial. Check it out when I'm done. I'll add you as a Favorite.

Quoting The Essence Of Randomness . Here's me being very nerdy but I could name the people. Mike Strank, Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, Harlon Block, Franklin Sously, Hank Hansen, Ralph Ignatowski, John Bradley. And the people made famous were the ones who put up up the peplacement flag after the first one was taken down. Good representation though.
Wow, you sure know your history, nice and cheers...

Quoting Christopher Honkzo6 no doubt its the folliwng dates: Iwo jima, 1945 I expect someone else has already guessed this, and I am basically doing a pointless answer.
hehe, well done, and it's never pointless to remember the war heroes of those civilisations that fought for freedom. Cheers...

Semper Fi. US Marines raising Old Glory on the top of Mt. Surabachi during the invasion of Iwo Jima! Love it!

A little to bright green for my tastes, I still prefer the Indian Jones army figs, but these work just as well. The photo was taken on Feburary 23, 1945 on the summit of Mount Surabachi, Iwo Jima by Joe Rosenthal. Did you know that this was not the first photo taken, one by Loy Lowerly was taken shortly before it at 10 AM. This was them raising the flag again. =)

Quoting Mister Bones Brick Freak, US troops in the Pacific and Europe primarily wore olive green, not tan. Just to let you know. Cheers.
Yeh, I didn't think tan would be more approriate either, I know mine are more of a Korea/Vietnam Green, but what can you do hey? Cheers Mr. Bones.

Alright, it was taken on the 23rd of February 1945 on Iwo Jima. It was actually taken by accident by photographer Joe Rosenthal.

I do recall the famous photo of the flag raising on Mt Suribachi. The flag was raised during the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. This was one of the many islands where the Japanese fought almost to the last man. (I was a history major) Well done MOC.

Quoting robert ball And nobody's tried to identify it? It's the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. And it's a great Moc. I had commented earlier but my first comment seems to have gone South. I had an uncle, Arleigh Ball, who also fought in that battle, and others. P.S. I believe it was in February of 1945.
Hehe,Sand Ninja hit the nail on the head. It seems a fair few are familiar with it. P.S. I hope your Uncle made it through to the end of the war. P.P.S. 'Lest we Forget.'

Dagnabbit! Somebody beat me to it. I'd recommend using tan uniforms instead. Though I guess the helmets only come in green...
