On the 77th anniversary of the Iwo Jima flag raising, VBC Coffee Hour welcomes Brent “Westy” Westemeyer to talk about how wrong the above photo of the flag raisers is (hint: only two of the six are properly identified). Westy is the amateur historian who identified Harold “Pie” Keller  as the “missing” Marine in Joe Rosenthal’s famous photo. We’ll also welcome Kay Keller Maurer, Pie’s daughter, to remember her hero father. Simulcast to Facebook and YouTube. Just like our usual veterans storytelling breakfasts, but made virtual!
