Today is the 74th anniversary of the raising of the flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima and the day that West Virginia war hero Woody Williams earned his Medal of Honor. With the support of four marines, he single-handedly destroyed seven Japanese machine gun pill boxes with flamethrowers.
Here is part of an interview I did with Woody discussing that day as part of the West Virginia Voices of War project.
Woody Williams is the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from Iwo Jima. The painting behind him is of his actions that day.
