War Memorial

Regular price $26.00
The United States Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) is located in Arlington County, Virginia. In 1954, the war memorial was dedicated to all U.S. Marine Corps personnel who died in the defense of the United States since 1775.

The memorial was inspired by an iconic 1945 photograph of six Marines raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi, during the Battle of Iwo Jima, World War II, taken by Associated Press combat photographer Joe Rosenthal. Upon first seeing the photo, sculptor Felix de Weldon created a small preliminary model during a weekend in Patuxent River Naval Air Station in Maryland, while serving in the Navy. He and architect Horace W. Peaslee designed the memorial and presented it to Congress. In 1947, a federal foundation was established to raise funds for the memorial.
