September 11th and the Spirit of Iwo Jima
Five years ago, we remembered American heroism in a photograph that paid tribute to the soldiers of World War II.
At Iwo Jima, we lost over 6,000 men in a mere six weeks, fighting for a piece of rock that was necessary to victory.
Today we fighting terrorism in a theater that has cost over 2500 American lives.
The spirit of victory is the spirit of Iwo Jima.
