Author Ron Elliott takes notice of a Marine remembering a Marine.
Franklin Runyon Sousley was born in Elizaville, Ky., in Fleming County in 1925.
During World War II, Sousley was one of six men responsible for raising the flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima.
The book “From Hilltop to Mountaintop” depicts the life of Sousley, who was made famous by the unforgettable photo by Joe Rosenthal.
Chapter 20 of the book tells the story of a fellow Marine, Tommy White, who took it upon himself to see that Sousley got the memorial he deserved.
