U.S. Marines of the 28th Regiment, 5th Division, raise the American flag atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima on Feb. 23, 1945, in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photo by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal. Alan Wood, a World War II veteran who provided the flag, has died at age 90. Mr. Wood was in charge of communications on a landing ship on Iwo Jima's shores when a Marine asked him for the biggest flag he could find. Mr. Wood handed him a flag he had found at Pearl Harbor.
