Berlin, Nazi-Germany, April 30, 1945, around 21.00. NCO Michail Minin of the Red Army places Hammer and Sickle on the Reichstag. The picture became world-famous. "Old soldiers never die; they fade away." No exception here for Michail: Der Sieges-Soldat ist tot.

Live and let live

You are probably right Elbert, but historical nevertheless; the flag raising at Iwo Jima took place on February 23, 1945. The six men planting the flag during this second flag-raising event were Mike Strank from Pennsylvania, Harlon Block from Texas, Franklin Sousley from Kentucky, John Bradley from Wisconsin, Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire and Ira Hayes from Arizona. Strank, Harlon, and Sousley died in combat. This is that famous picture:
