    this book has an amazing start. james bradley put alot of effort in this book. he went through alot of trouble to get more information about company e. i am proud of this guy that wrote this book. amazing man.

    I think you should also let people know about YOUR history about this book, Sesili!

    it is really real because the chateres were actualy the flag rasiers and that is really cool

    This book is really good. I like how it talks about all the different personality of the flag raisers. It also reminds me how lucky i am to have these soldiers fighting for my freedom.

    This book is pretty sweet. It kind of makes me want to be a Marine but at the same time I don’t know if I could have done what these guys did.

    I really appreciate James Bradly before reading this book I didn’t know much about Iwa Jima and the battle that was fought there. I think that it is interesting that all these men grew up in different parts of the U.S. and they all came together and ended up being friends.

    This is a cool book cause its like army stuff and stuff like that and stuff.

  8. Jake Crossley — December 18, 2011 @ 8:12 pm

    I really like how at the start of each chapter it has the quotation it helps me understand what the chapter I am about to read is about and I think it is so cool that even though James bradleys pop was not ordered to raise the flag he hoped in and did it anyways

  9. Jake Crossley — December 20, 2011 @ 4:44 pm

    I didn’t see the bronze statue although I wish I had it sounds really cool. I wonder why Bradly didn’t go to the first two meetings where all of the remaining flag raisers were invited to.

    I don’t like that Ira resorted to drinking becuase of the publicity, because that is bad and drinking is unhealthy. I think that Ira should have excepted the help from the authorities.

    Yeah Jake it said “I say some guysstruggling with a pole and I just jumped in to lne them a hand. It’s as simple as that.”I also like that John Bradly is always under constant fire, but he still does his job.

  12. Lucas Stevens — December 20, 2011 @ 8:06 pm

    I misspelled a few words like “guys struggling” and “lend”

    my great granddad had fought in world war 2. he was in company e and witnessed the flag raising. he was sent home on leave for a few weeks to rcover from a bullet wond. but knowing that he was there makes me very proud.

  14. Sesili Taukiuvea — December 20, 2011 @ 8:45 pm

    this book is great. so great im gonna call it kool. with a k. thats how kool this book is.

  15. Sesili Taukiuvea — December 20, 2011 @ 8:51 pm

    im glad they made this book. so that people who read it can understand the picture better. before i read the book it was just a picture. but now that i have read this book i have a better understanding of the picture and it has a more sentemental value to me. and my greatgrandad. “Heros arent the only ones that have suffered and felt pain, but have lived threw the pain and gotten threw it.”- Afu Fonua. my greatgrandad told me this after he shared his story with me.

  16. bryan alonzo — December 21, 2011 @ 1:06 pm

    i have been always intersted in war and reading this book made me feel greatful for what the heros of ww2 and what they did. the marines trained very hard for that mission.

  17. bryan alonzo — December 21, 2011 @ 1:16 pm

    I really like Harlon Block. He’s my favorite flag raiser. I like how he was a football star, and how he is a paratrooper.

  22. Lucas Stevens — December 21, 2011 @ 10:12 pm

    This book is so good that they made a movie out of it. But you know that the book is always better than the movie, and this book is pretty AWESOME.

  24. Kody Clegg — January 5, 2012 @ 9:08 pm

    This was so awesome. I felt like i wated to go and fight for our country to.

  25. Kody Clegg — January 5, 2012 @ 9:09 pm

    i feel like the main people in this war but you have got to stop and think that all the people that fought in this war was very important.

  26. Kody Clegg — January 5, 2012 @ 9:12 pm

    Ehen i found out that all the flag raisers were dead I was pretty sad. It was cool learning about the war because I never heard about this war.

  27. Kody Clegg — January 5, 2012 @ 9:15 pm

    At the first of my last bellreads I spelt “when’ wrong so i just wanted to tell you that so I didn’t look like a fool. So anyways this last part of the book was really cool because we got to eventually find out all of the history of the war.

  28. Michael Milliner — January 8, 2012 @ 8:45 pm
