I am a retired Marine, and I would love to hear you explain to the survivors of the campaign on Iwo Jima just why you had to use "our photo" with a tree [April 28]. I work in an environmental-protection field, have a degree in biology and can not only spell ecology but understand the implications of human actions on our environment. I think you may mean well, but your judgment leaves a bit to be desired. Please leave the ecological subjects in the realm of science and the patriotic war and flag symbols in theirs. Mark Ronning, FERGUS FALLS, MINN.
Raising the flag on mount Suribachi was a sign of victory for our military in a hard-fought battle. Our country lost more than 400,000 soldiers in WW II. If global warming ever causes that many deaths, then you can start Photoshopping pictures. Meredith Lea, BLOOMINGTON, ILL.
