They fight for their country but they die for their friends.
There were five Marines and one Navy Corpsman photographed raising the U.S. flag on Mt. Suribachi by Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945. "Flags of Our Fathers" is the story of three of the six surviving servicemen, John "Doc" Bradley (Ryan Phillippe), Pvt. Rene Gagnon (Jesse Bradford), and Pvt. Ira Hayes (Adam Beach), who fought in the battle to take Iwo Jima. "Flags of Our Fathers" is the American viewpoint of Eastwood's diptych on the battle of Iwo Jima, the other being "Letters From Iwo Jima", which tells the same story from the Japanse point of view.

good film ish but watch "Letters From Iwo Jima" Ten times better than this one.

A bit of a scattered storyline, more of a look on the story/hype of the flag rising and the homefront than the battle/war itself.
Don't forget to watch its (better) counterpart, the Japanese view: 'Letters From Iwo Jima'
