    Wow, if I would have known about that, I would have flew out and watched it.

    Are they going to do that again?

    It was to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Iwo Jima, the whole event was put on by the National Museum of the Pacific War, they do a lot of Marine Corps reenactments and other cool stuff, go here for their 2006 events calendar: http://www.nimitz-museum.org/events.php
