Naval Academy honors Iwo Jima vets

The sports world has always been a great place to find military
tributes, but perhaps no one has done it better than the seniors on
the Naval Academy swim team, who photographed an underwater
re-creation of the Iwo Jima flag raising and posted it to Twitter
on Wednesday:

The photo was a unique nod to past members of the armed forces
by future members of the armed forces, and — not that anyone
ever roots
against the Naval Academy — you can’t help but
want to pull for these seniors (called Firsties, short for First
Class Midshipmen) when they open their season against George Mason
and Loyola next Thursday.
