    Where...... "Uncommon Valor Was a Common Virtue"


    Semper Fi!

    We have two companies of Marines running rampant all over the northern half of this island, and three Army regiments pinned down in the southwestern corner, doing nothing. What the hell is going on? [Gen. John W. Vessey Jr., USA, Chairman of the the Joint Chiefs of Staff; during the assault on Grenada, 1983]

    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.

    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.
