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.
