During WW2 the American Government\'s war chest was empty because the American people didn\'t have faith that they could win so they stopped buying war bonds. So a campaign was launched using the photo of the Flag Raising at Iwo Jima. Now the three surviving men in the picture, Doc Bradley, Rene Gagnon and Ira Hayes are brought back to the U.S. for the bond drive. But when they arrive they learn that the story the government released to the press is full inaccuracies and they have keep on saying the story even though it\'s not true. While Rene Gagnon has no trouble saying it, Doc Bradley and Ira Hayes are not comfortable with it.
