What a shame the American people do not care about the true heroes of our wonderful nation, then or now. It makes me so sad.

Great song, its so sad how Ira was after the war ended our country should be better to those who witnessed the horrors of battle and war dont let them lose it because of shell shock or survivors guilt that poor man deserved better

I honor Ira Hayes, but not for the flag raising, rather for his service and his sacrifice, for all who fight, whether they live or die lose a part of themselves. May God bless them and protect them all.

He is a true American Hero, and a Marine - as are most Marines. I was aware of Ira Hayes, when I heard Johnny had a song for Ira. Well done and we must never forget his service and sacrifice for his country. He deserved so much more. As with most Marines.

Very thought provoken song with a lot of truth. I am sure there are a lot of Ira Hayes's out there over the years. I pray that our father in heaven will bless them, and comfort them.

He was a proud Marine brother that we should be proud of. Its a shame what our country has forgotten about how we got where nwe are today.

The very very best kind of cheese. My name is Hayes. May we always remember all of the nameless, just like Ira.

One of the best songs ever recorded!
