Joe Rosenthal Dies at 94.

“To get that flag up there, America’s fighting men had to die on that island and on other islands and off the shores and in the air,” Mr. Rosenthal wrote. “What difference does it make who took the picture? I took it, but the Marines took Iwo Jima.”

Not too many journalists are that humble these days. And I try to give credit where credit is due. The NYT's piece was a good one and I recommend all read it. Close friends have told me that the negative is in deed the most exposed (used) in the Archives history.
