The surviving members of the Americans who raised the flag at Iwo Jima reveal that the photo of them raising the flag was posed. The actual flag had been taken down and then re-raised for the picture.

February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloody battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi.
