Bradley John



Iwo Jima Flag Raiser John Bradley, Signed Check, PSA/DNA Slabbed 


 

Signed and dated check, drawn from the Fidelity Marine Bank in Antigo, Wisconsin to "Sr. Clarissa Donovan", dated "Aug 28, 1988", and boldly signed by John H. Bradley as "John H. Bradley",  8.25" x 3", with pink cancellation stamp not affecting signature. Slabbed and graded by PSA/DNA as NM – MT 8.


 

A wonderful signed check by IWO flag raiser John Bradley. The flag raising at IWO Jima occurred twice in the battle. The first was at 8 AM on February 23, when Bradley and Navy corpsman, PhM2c. Gerald Ziehme (replaced PhM3c. Langley who was wounded in action on February 21), were part of the 40-man combat patrol (mostly from Third Platoon, Easy Company) were sent to climb up the east slope of Mount Suribachi to seize and occupy the crest and to raise an American flag to signal that the mountaintop was captured. On top, the Marines found a steel pipe to attach the flag unto. The flagstaff was taken to the highest position on the crater.  Seeing the raising of the national colors immediately caused loud cheering from the Marines, sailors, and Coast Guardsmen on the beach below and from the men on the ships near the beach. After the flag was raised, Bradley, who was with the group of Marines near the flagstaff, pitched in to help the flagstaff stay vertical in the terrific winds on the volcano.


 

The Second Flag raising, the one memorialized by the Pulitzer prize winning photo, was initiated using a larger flag in order for the American flag to be seen more easily from the ships, beaches, and land off and around Mount Suribachi. Marine Sgt. Michael Strank was ordered to ascend Mount Suribachi with Marines from his squad and raise the replacement flag and return with the first flag that was flying on top.


 

John Bradley was an awardee of both the Navy Cross and the Purple Heart for his contributions during the battle. His handwritten booklet is a unique, very personal piece, used by Bradley for his medical training, with impeccable provenance. The fantastic example of this handsome war memorial program, pairs perfectly with his booklet and also was personally owned by John Bradley.  Bradley was an awardee of both the Navy Cross and the Purple Heart for his contributions during the battle. The memorial stands today located on a high ridge, overlooking the national capital.
