    I didn't realize this sculpture was as large as it is.

    I guess sex is in the eye of the beholder - this guy needs therapy for his obsessions with gay sex.

    YourName2000 saidI actually knew which statue they'd be dissing before I clicked in.

    What a vulgar and offensive thing to say about that moment in history though, a moment when Russia and the US were actually allies.

    Yeah, me too. I've seen that monument IRL many times. I first photographed it 50 years ago, when I went to Arlington as a teenager to pay my respects at President Kennedy's grave.

    I made a comment about the statue in another recent thread, regarding a gay version, of raising the rainbow flag in imitation of Iwo Jima.

    Something I don't endorse, for all my uber-gay sentiments, though once I did think it was clever, when I first saw the rainbow version. I don't believe that now. There are some things that are sacred, and off-limits, to all of us. And certainly to a homophobic Russian news anchor.

    I appreciate your sensitivity to this, and as a Canadian. Thank you very sincerely.

    US Marine Corps War Memorial

    Thirty-two foot high figures are shown raising a 60-foot bronze flagpole.


    The entire cost of the statue ($850,000) was donated by US Marines, friends of the Marine Corps, and members of the Naval Service.

    In today's dollars, that would be approximately $7.26 million

    Wow, and I thought Tony Perkins, Peter LaBarbera, and Scott Lively were obsessed with gay sex. This guy makes all three of them put together blush.
