Comm. Paul Matheny was the keynote speaker at Fayetteville High School’s Veterans’ Day ceremonies, which also saw students re-enact the iconic photo taken Feb. 23, 1945, by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal of five U.S. Marines and a Navy sailor raising the American flag over the battle-scarred Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Other students also participated in the ceremonies, including Lexie Foxx, a senior who performed “America the Beautiful”.
