More than 50 Marine combat cameramen operated across the island of Iwo Jima, as one of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theater of World War II raged on. Curator Greg Wilsbacher at the University of South Carolina Libraries has been working with the U.S. Marine Corps History Division to digitize this footage. In this film, he provides commentary on some of the highlights of this newly digitized footage. The footage was mainly intended to be used for intelligence and training, but it provides an intimate look at the battle, and also the Marines who were a part of it.

They are an ELITE bunch.

The SR-71 Blackbird Story

I grew up a couple doors up the street from Jim Eastham, who was the 2nd person to fly the Blackbird. He was full of great stories about his service.
