John ‘Doc’ Bradley Raised the Flag at Iwo Jima
John Bradley was a Navy Corpsman, serving as the medic for a Marine infantry platoon during the invasion of Iwo Jima. He is one of the six warriors in the iconic photo of the flag raising atop Mount Suribachi. His bravery under fire saved Marines on the ground, and his efforts on the war bond tour helped raise enough money to win the war in the Pacific.
