The Marine Corps is investigating if it misidentified one of the men in an iconic photo from World War II.
The picture in question shows six U.S. service members raising the American flag on a mountain on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal snapped the photo.
One of the men was originally thought to be Navy Corpsman John Bradley. Bradley's son eventually wrote a book about the photo called "Flags of Our Fathers," which was eventually made into a movie.
