    It froze them in an elegant instant of battle: froze them in a camera lens as they hoisted an American flag on a makeshift pole. As night falls on the fourth day of fighting, and the news reaches the Japanese navy guard headquarters as well as Harry the Horse Liversedge that Mount Suribachi has fallen. But not for the rest of us. John Bradley, his own father, was from Appleton, Wisconsin. A larger flag was attached to the make-shift pole and hoisted by six different marines and was captured by Joe Rosenthal, an imbedded AP photographer. Two nights later, while Doc is helping a wounded Marine, Iggy is abducted by Japanese troops and dragged into a tunnel.

    Marines flanked the other. John decided he wanted to be a funeral director and enlisted in the Navy with the hope of avoiding land battle. To his wife of forty-seven years he spoke about it only once, on their first date. Six months earlier, he had said good-bye to his friends on the porch of the Hilltop General Store. Tanned, his sleeves rolled up over brawny forearms, muscular Sergeant Major Lee looked like a man who could eat a gun, never mind shoot one. The first flag raising was with a smaller flag and different soldiers.

    In those boxes my father had saved the many photos and documents that came his way as a flagraiser. When asked to help with the identification of the flag raisers in the photograph, Rene Gagnon mistakes Harlon Block for Hank Hansen and does not notice Ira Hayes as one of the participants. Mike Strank enlisted in the Marines before America entered the war. Jack Bradley decided to enlist in the Navy, in hopes of avoiding battle.

Shortly after the book's publication, Steven Spielberg acquired the option on the film rights for DreamWorks Pictures. When the Japanese attacked Flags of our fathers book Harbor, their fates were sealed.

John Bradley, his own father, was from Appleton, Wisconsin. And this is how we Bradley children grew up: happily enough, deeply connected to our peaceful, tree-shaded town, but always with a sense of an unsolved mystery somewhere at the edges of the picture.

Then it was on to the invasion beaches, the sands of Iwo Jima. The blockhouses were hideous remnants of the island defenders' fanaticism in a cause they knew was lost. Rene Gagnon is sent up with a replacement flag, since Chandler Johnson does not want the Secretary of the Navy to get his hands on the original.

I pointed now to what could be seen of Mike.
