Iwo Jima flag raiser John Bradley with John Wayne during the filming of Wayne’s classic war film, "The Sands of Iwo Jima." Bradley, along with Ira Hayes and Rene Gagnon, played himself. Bradley, a medic and civilian mortician, struggled with PTSD his entire adult life and rarely talked about the war after the film was released. This suffering veteran, directly linked to our country’s greatest war actors, symbolizes the void between Hollywood and the sad realities of war.

Letters from Iwo Jima - Awesome film. 5 out of 5 pop corns. My only suggestion is that you watch it in the Japanese version with the sub titles and that you have a box of tissues handy.
