Sgt. Genaust got no credit for his footage of the flag-raising in accordance with Marine Corps policy. In 1995, a bronze plaque was put atop Suribachi to honor him.

The search was prompted in large part by information provided by Bob Bolus, a Scranton, Pa., businessman who became intrigued by Sgt. Genaust after reading a Parade magazine story about him two years ago. Using his own money, Mr. Bolus put together a team of experts that was able to pinpoint where Sgt. Genaust’s remains are likely to be found.
