This was one of the most important moments in American history: the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima that brought about the end of WWII.

I hope you like it!

Note: I know there were only 48 states then, but I am going to use this in later time period MOCs ;)

Wow. That's awesome Baylego. I love how you made the flag.

Are those Toy Story army men you used for the American soldiers :?

Has he served in the army? Or are you just giving him an awesome MOC for the heck of it? Just curious. :)
