That's a Copy of the Original Doc, signed!!!
The one everyone sees today was taken shortly thereafter because in the First one the Flag was too small.

But that one I posted was actually as it happened.:iwo:

There is, It's called Flags of our Fathers, and its directed by Clint Eastwood. Its somewhat confusing at first because the movie skips from past to present, but once its over you just sit there and say wow.
