Enogai Inlet, New Georgia Islands, September, 1943. Col. Harry Liversedge, Commanding Officer of the Marine Raiders, reads his first letter from home since he went into action. Regarded as one of the greatest combat leaders in Marine Corps history, in 1945 he led his Combat Team 28 to the top of Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima, an event made famous by Joe Rosenthal's iconic image of the flag being raised by five Marines and a Navy medic.
