Monochrome Friday: Pacific War Memorial


The Pacific War Memorial is at the entrance to the Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay. 

This memorial depicts the flag raising atop Mt. Suribachi  on February 23, 1945 during the Battle of Iwo Jima.  AP photographer Joe Rosenthal snapped the photo of the five Marines and one Navy corpsman raising the American Flag.

Salvatore Perrotta casted this memorial which was dedicated on March 16, 2002.
