It’s one of the most iconic images of World War II — the flag-raising by five Marines and a sailor on Mount Suribachi in 1945 on the island of Iwo Jima.
The event, captured by news photographer Joe Rosenthal, is cast larger than life in a bronze statue in Arlington, Va. The monument and grounds, officially called the Marine Corps War Memorial, is often referred to as the Iwo Jima memorial.
At close to 60 years old, the memorial is showing its age.
