I love this, however it is missing one person? the person who took this shot Joe Rosenthal, who I had the honor of meeting and getting his autograph on this very same picture.

Sgt. First Class Allan E. Brown, 46, of Takoma Park, died at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda. He had been hospitalized for injuries from a suicide bomb attack at a U.S. airfield in Bagram, Afghanistan.

Two other soldiers — Sgt. John W. Perry, 30, of Stockton, California, and Pfc. Tyler R. Iubelt, 20, of Tamaroa, Illinois — and two American contractors were killed in the explosion. More than a dozen U.S. service members and one Polish soldier had been injured.
