Iwo Jima

Iwo Jima

In March of 1945, the Battle of Iwo Jima was fought between the United States and the Imperial Japan. After Mount Suribachi, a volcano on Iwo Jima, was captured by the Navy, six men raised the Flag of the United States. The Photo of this act became very popular and became the sample for the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Virginia.

Mount Meru, Tanzania - Overlay

Mount Meru, Tanzania - Overlay

Mount Meru is an active volcano located just 70 kilometers (44 miles) west of Mount Kilimanjaro. It reaches 4,566 meters (14,978 feet) in height but has lost much of its bulk due to an eastward volcanic blast sometime in its distant past, perhaps similar to the eruption of Mount Saint Helens in Washington State in 1980.
