Six Boys and Thirteen Hands. The Raising of the Flag on Mount Suribachi

This came to me in an email. I'm not sure who wrote it, but it is an incredible story. Today (February 23, 2011)  is the anniversary date of the raising of the flag on Mount Suribachi (1945), so I thought I would share it with you.

Six Boys And Thirteen Hands...

Each year I am hired to go to Washington , DC , with the eighth grade class from Clinton , WI where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our nation's capitol, and each year I take some special memories back with me. This fall's trip was especially memorable. 

On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history -- that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima , Japan , during WW II.
Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, 'Where are you guys from?' 
I told him that we were from Wisconsin . 'Hey, I'm a cheese head, too! Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story.'

(It was James Bradley who just happened to be in Washington , DC , to speak at the memorial the following day. He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who had passed away. He was just about to leave when he saw the buses pull up. I videotaped him as he spoke to us, and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape. It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington , DC , but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.)
When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak. (Here are his words that night.)

'My name is James Bradley and I'm from Antigo, Wisconsin . My dad is on that statue, and I just wrote a book called 'Flags of Our Fathers' which is #5 on the New York Times Best Seller list right now. It is the story of the six boys you see behind me. 

'Six boys raised the flag. The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block. Harlon was an all-state football player. He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team. They were off to play another type of game. A game called 'War.' But it didn't turn out to be a game. Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands. I don't say that to gross you out, I say that because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war. You guys need to know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old - and it was so hard that the ones who did make it home never even would talk to their families about it.

(He pointed to the statue) 'You see this next guy? That's Rene Gagnon fromNew Hampshire. If you took Rene's helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a photograph..a photograph of his girlfriend. Rene put that in there for protection because he was scared. He was 18 years old. It was just boys who won the battle of Iwo Jima . Boys. Not old men. 
'The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank. Mike is my hero. He was the hero of all these guys. They called him the 'old man' because he was so old. He was already 24. When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn't say, 'Let's go kill some Japanese' or 'Let's die for our country.' He knew he was talking to little boys.. Instead he would say, 'You do what I say, and I'll get you home to your mothers.'

'The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona . Ira Hayes was one of them who lived to walk off Iwo Jima . He went into the White House with my dad. President Truman told him, 'You're a hero' He told reporters, 'How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked off alive?'
So you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun, doing everything together. Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive. That was Ira Hayes. He had images of horror in his mind. Ira Hayes carried the pain home with him and eventually died dead drunk, face down, drowned in a very shallow puddle, at the age of 32 (ten years after this picture was taken). 
'The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky . A fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. His best friend, who is now 70, told me, 'Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General Store. Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn't get down. Then we fed them Epsom salts. Those cows crapped all night.' Yes, he was a fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. Franklin died on Iwo Jima at the age of 19. When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store. A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother's farm. The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning. Those neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away.

'The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley, from Antigo, Wisconsin , where I was raised. My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews. When Walter Cronkite's producers or the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say 'No, I'm sorry, sir, my dad's not here. He is in Canada fishing. No, there is no phone there, sir. No, we don't know when he is coming back.' My dad never fished or even went to Canada . Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell 's soup. But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing He didn't want to talk to the press.

'You see, like Ira Hayes, my dad didn't see himself as a hero. Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, 'cause they are in a photo and on a monument. My dad knew better. He was a medic. John Bradley from Wisconsin was a combat caregiver. On Iwo Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died. And when boys died on Iwo Jima , they writhed and screamed, without any medication or help with the pain.
'When I was a little boy, my third grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero. When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, 'I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back. Did NOT come back.' 

'So that's the story about six nice young boys. Three died on Iwo Jima , and three came back as national heroes. Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima in the worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps. My voice is giving out, so I will end here. Thank you for your time.' 

Suddenly, the monument wasn't just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top. It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero. Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless. 

We need to remember that God created this vast and glorious world for us to live in, freely, but also at great sacrifice . Let us never forget from the Revolutionary War to the current War on Terrorism and all the wars in-between that sacrifice was made for our freedom...please pray for our troops.

Remember to pray praises for this great country of ours and also ...please pray for our troops still in murderous places around the world. 

STOP TODAY and be thankful for being alive and being free due to someone else's sacrifice.

God Bless You and God Bless America .

REMINDER: Everyday that you can wake up free, it's going to be a great day.

One thing I learned while on tour with my 8th grade students in DC that is not mentioned here is . . that if you look at the statue very closely and count the number of 'hands' raising the flag, there are 13. When the man who made the statue was asked why there were 13, he simply said the 13th hand was the hand of God.

Trying to help your child adapt to military life? Don't miss this!

Renowned pediatrician, psychologist to visit Lejeune, teach child resiliency

Cpl. Jonathan G. Wright, Marine Corps Base

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — It is an old Marine Corps adage that, "If the Corps wanted you to have a spouse, it would have issued you one."
While marriage to a service member has its own obstacles to overcome as compared to having a civilian spouse, the trials of being a military child dealing with parents’ deployments and periodic moves can sometimes become overwhelming. This may indeed be the case for many Marine and Navy families aboard the largest Marine Corps installation on the East Coast.
This is why Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., MD Ed, a nationally-renowned pediatrician and psychiatrist, will be visiting Jacksonville High School from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and the Russell Marine and Family Center Auditorium aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune from 7 to 8:30 p.m., March 3, to present his seminar on how to raise resilient children in military-oriented lifestyles.
"He’s an absolute expert on what he teaches," said David Schock, regional school liaison officer for Marine Corps Installations East. "He helps families cope with their loved ones being away and teaches how to better raise their children on their own."
Specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Ginsburg uses a blend of humor and real-life scenarios to educate others on what a child might be going through growing up in a military household but reluctant to tell about.
In the one and a half hour class, attendees will be exposed to everyday strategies in recognizing when a child may be at risk and developing the seven C’s in a maturing child; competence, confidence, connection, character, contribution, coping and control.
"(Ginsburg) has worked with military children for many years and has recently focused on learning the culture of Marine Corps families and what the children go through during a parental deployment," said Sarah Wiltgen, deputy director of Marine and Family Programs. "He’s really good about giving take-home strategies and pointers on the impact of family and deployment stressors in children."
Resiliency is the ability for children to learn how to adapt to changing situations; something that is crucial to the modern military child.
Ginsburg, at no cost to the base, is ensuring Camp Lejeune families are aware of the impacts, both recognizable and not, being such a child will have in their maturing stages.
"Military children move an average of six to eight times during their 13 years of schooling," said Schock. "There are approximately 2.1 million military children throughout the world, and half of that population is under 10 years of age. They have the possibility of only knowing war and living with deployment stress and the loss of support all their lives."
With another major Lejeune-based deployment on the horizon, Ginsburg is aiming to further equip military families with the tools they will need in raising their children in a time of war and be more confident in recognizing when deployment stress may become too heavy.
For more information regarding Dr. Ginsburg’s visits, call Schock at 449-9748, or Julie Fulton, the base school liaison officer, at (910) 449-9915.

Dixon High Wrestling, Holly Ridge, NC

The Daily News
 
Dixon is two wins shy of bringing home the NCHSAA 1-A state dual wrestling championship.
But those wins won’t come easy, a fact not lost on coach Dal Tomlinson, which means it’s also not lost on his Bulldogs.
“I’ve looked at all of the teams,” Tomlinson said. “We all have basically the same type of record and same type of wrestlers. Our good guys are their good guys. So it’s going to be a tough match. Whoever ends up winning I think they’re all going to be good, close matches.”
Still, the favorite has to be the host of the four-team semifinals and finals, West Wilkes, which beat Rosewood 60-10 in last year’s finals and lost to Topsail 44-28 in the championship two years ago.
Over the last three years the Blackhawks are 59-8.
“I would agree with that,” Tomlinson said of West Wilkes being the favorite. “Home advantage is big. I have asked all of my co-workers that if they know any of our former students that are in that part of the same, call them and tell them to come yell for us because it’s a big deal. You go up there and, of course, they’re jacked up. They’re state champions.”
West Wilkes will have to wait, however. The Bulldogs (20-6) take on North Rowan (18-3) at 2 p.m. in one of two regional matchups, with West Wilkes (17-3) battling Robbinsville (24-6) in the other semifinal.
The winners square off at about 5 p.m. for the state title.
North Rowan is led by two 2010 state qualifiers, Tyler Powers (125 pounds) and Thomas Fowler (160), according to coach Tim Pittman. Last Saturday, Powers beat defending state champ Daniel Hernandez of East Montgomery 5-2 in the 125-pound finals of the Yadkin Valley Conference tournament.
There are a couple interesting twists for the Bulldogs.
Dixon’s baseball team lost to West Wilkes in the three-game 1-A state finals series last year — a team that included right fielder Joey D’Zurilla, who is one of Dixon’s standout wrestlers at 171 pounds.
Also, West Wilkes assistant coach Mitch Stegall was a two-time state champion for the Bulldogs under then-coach Homer Spring — at 171 pounds.
Dixon will be seeking its fourth state title in just over two decades. The Bulldogs won what was then the combined 1-A/2-A state championships in 1990, 1992 and 1994 under Spring, who is now Dixon’s athletic director.
While he didn’t predict Dixon would bring back another title, Tomlinson said there’s no doubt in his mind the Bulldogs can win it all.
“I just told our guys looking at the stats from their guys and our guys and who they wrestled and who we wrestled, yeah, I think if we wrestle like we can, like we have the potential to, then, we can,” he said.
“But there’s no doubt in my mind it’s going to be just as tight as the other night with Central Academy (36-28 win in the second round). That if we win, it’s going to be a squeaker. But I also think we lose, it’ll be a squeaker.”
Tomlinson was asked what was the key for Dixon to win it.
 “The key (is) going to be if we have to lose some matches, then keep those matches at a minimal loss, meaning to keep them at the minor decision, major decision. No tech falls, no pins,” he said. “And then the matches that we can win, we need to pin. That is the key. And that is what the other coaches would say to their team, too.
“Keep the losses small, and keep the wins big.”
North Rowan advanced to the semifinals with victories over Pamlico 45-18 and Ayden-Grifton 43-28 while West Wilkes made it by downing Swain County 45-35 and Bishop McGuiness 42-25. Robbinsville downed Alleghany 63-13 and North Wilkes 57-13.

Commandant considers MARSOC MOS


Corps may create special operations career path
By Gina Cavallaro - Staff writer
Posted : Monday Feb 7, 2011 5:45:31 EST

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — Marines who would like to forge a career as a MARSOC special operator may soon have their wish granted.
Commandant Gen. Jim Amos is now considering a plan that could create a permanent career path, rather than forcing Marines to rotate back to the regular force after five years. Amos, who met with Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command leaders here Jan. 18, discussed the MOS and his intent to increase the number of operators and support personnel assigned to MARSOC, according to Marines who attended the meeting.
The plan calls for creation of a primary MOS in which operators can compete for promotion over the course of a career with MARSOC. Currently, Marines are assigned to MARSOC only for five-year tours.
“We think this is an important part of our continued growth in terms of capacity and the ability to attract and keep well-qualified and competent Marines, offering them a clear career path with growth … and opportunities for promotion,” said MARSOC spokesman Maj. Jeffrey Landis, confirming that a plan to make the job a career path was presented to Amos during his visit to the command’s Stone Bay headquarters here.
 
 
Details of the plan are being worked out with Manpower and Reserve Affairs at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., Landis said. He declined to offer any specifics or timelines for implementation because MARSOC leaders have not yet received a response.
Known as critical skills operators, Marines trained to perform special operations missions abroad are assigned to MARSOC, but they compete for promotion in the primary MOS they retain as operators. Most are from the reconnaissance community, whose Marines formed the bulk of MARSOC’s manning requirements when the command stood up in February 2006.
Now, as the command’s five-year anniversary approaches, many Marines assigned to MARSOC for the initial five-year rotation are wondering whether they will have to return to the fleet. They maintain that a special operations organization can work and mature only if the time and money invested in training highly skilled teams of operators is kept within the ranks, built upon with gained expertise and taught to future operators.
Soldiers in Special Forces units and sailors who become SEALs can stay in their career fields and compete for promotion, with the added advantage that their long-term relationships form a deep brain trust over time and build on lessons learned to help units operate more effectively.
“You’d never really be a special ops unit if you just had new guys coming in all the time,” said one MARSOC operator who preferred to remain anonymous.
It’s not the first time that MARSOC’s operators have been on the brink of seeing their jobs codified as a primary MOS. Retired Maj. Gen. Mastin Robeson, upon relinquishing command of MARSOC to Maj. Gen. Paul Lefebvre in November 2009, told Marine Corps Times that the establishment of an MOS was imminent, but it never moved forward.
The intent behind the five-year rotations was to return specially trained Marines to units that could benefit from their experiences and knowledge, and MARSOC was established at a time when the Defense Department was calling for a boost in the capabilities of special operations forces.
Opponents to the creation of MARSOC argued that the Corps didn’t need an “elite force within an elite force,” which was much the same argument made when recon Marines got their own MOS about 10 years ago.
Amos, a self-described “big fan” of MARSOC, addressed the issue in September during his Senate confirmation hearing, saying the Corps was “evaluating multiple options to ensure an efficient return on investment” to the Marine Corps and to Special Operations Command, MARSOC’s parent organization.
Options being evaluated, he said in his answers to advance questions from the Senate panel, included extended assignments beyond five years and a primary MOS.
MARSOC’s current end strength is about 2,200 and climbing toward the manning authorization of close to 2,700, a goal the command is hoping to reach by 2014.
Eligibility to become an operator was expanded in November 2008 when the job was made available to all MOSs instead of just combat arms. That expansion, coupled with the formalization of a recruiting mechanism to screen potential applicants has increased the number of candidates MARSOC has to choose from.
Amos said he wants to increase the size of MARSOC by bringing in more support personnel and training more operators. A primary MOS for operators would help ensure the number of instructors remains constant at the schoolhouse and in the pre-assessment and selection preparatory course, while the operational teams are properly manned for deployments.
