On the FOXNews Channel Hosted by Lt. Col. Oliver North

On July 7 @ 2100 and 0200

More than 50 years after the Iwo Jima battle, questions still remain and controversies still rage...
The battleground in Japan is where six men bravely planted the American flag. The picture is frozen in the mind of many Americans and it inspired the Marine Memorial in Washington D.C.
Who were those 6 men? What are their stories?
One of the brave Marines captured in the photo carried a picture of his girlfriend Rene inside the webbing of his helmet. Did he make it back alive to see her again? Find out the whole story.
Plus, hear what it was like to fight a war in a place the Marines say, was "hell with the fire out".
Back home in the United States—Americans were still recovering from the Great Depression, The Worlds Fair came to New York, Lou Gehrig said goodbye and Miss Scarlett kissed Rhett Butler.
President Roosevelt and the American public had no idea of the ferocity, the intensity and the extraordinary number of casualties that would come with the Iwo Jima battle.
Nearly 7000 soldiers were killed.
War Stories with Oliver North will help us learn about America’s heroes and honor their extraordinary efforts.

Hi ken !
How's the HEAT down in Fla. and how are you ?
Thanks for the " Heads-up " ! This is something that I will
definitely be tuned into.
In my opinion the only mistake we made, was giving the Japs
Iwo Jima back ! That's " American blood soaked soil " !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All our boy's, including my Uncle gave their young lives for that island.
Seem's our Goverment forgot about that one !
I would of told them if they wanted back, they have to fight another war !
" But that's just me "
Thanks again - I'll surely be watching !
