Default Flags of Our Fathers

I've got the book, and will be reading it soon. I've enjoyed other
books by James Brady, and a friend who attended the movie with us told
me that it's better than the movie (as always).


It would be good news indeed if Bradley did a better job on "Flags" than he
did on "Flyboys". That one was quite a disappointment for me and I have not
been enthused about paying for another Bradley book.

But only Bradley returned to any semblance of a normal life. None attached
very much significance to what they had done (the flag raising, not the
battle)

Three of the six men of the second flag raising survived and were part
of the war bond tour. The third man was Renee Gagnon of Manchester, NH.


When I saw the film I had the same experience as Jay. I stayed and
watched every frame of the credits till the screen went black and when
I turned to go virtually the entire audience was still there. Not a
word was said even as we left the theater.
