Hero from another era…we are losing hundreds every month.

Charles W. Lindberg, photographed in his Richfield, Minn home on May 25, 2004, holds the Silver Star he won for bravery during the battle for Iwo Jima in World War II. Lindberg, who died Sunday June 24, 2007, was the last survivor of the six U.S. Marines who raised the first American flag over Iwo Jima. A second planting of the U.S. flag was immortalized in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph by Joe Rosenthal that became one of the signature photographs of the war.
