US Navy Swim Team Does Underwater Iwo Jima Photo Op

I'll be brief like a yellow polka-dot bikini…

I'm sure most of you know exactly what I mean when I mention the iconic flag raising of US soldiers at Iwo Jima, Japan.

It's one of those iconic photographic images - the planting of the stars &; stripes on Mount Suribachi—taken by Joe Rosenthal.

There are statues and other memorials representing this image (See HERE), but you have to like the effort put in by the US Naval Academy men's swim team on September 25, 2013.

Cheers,
Andrew Joseph

  1. Wonder if those boys got in trouble? Ref: Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, Subsection B of the U.S. Code: ""The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise." (http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/4/8)
