Overview
Following the fierce battle to claim Mount Suribachi in the opening days of the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima, six Marines valiantly raise the American flag on the mountain's summit as a signal to their compatriots to continue the fight. Inadvertently, the photo of the event brings the group unwanted fame back home, where they are hailed as heroes. The U.S. government, desperate to raise funds to support the war, decides to capitalize on their popularity by bringing the three survivors of the battle back to the states for a war bond tour. The trio reflect on their lives as they struggle to deal with their newfound celebrity, survivor's guilt and to live up to the reputations the War Department has carefully cultivated for them, even though they know the stories are untrue.
