Michael Mike Strank (in Russian: Mykhal Strenk; in Slovak: Michal Strenk) (November 10, 1919 – March 1, 1945) was a soldier of the United States Marine Corps. United of Ukrainian descent during World War II, photographed in Raising the Flag at Iwo Jima on top of Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima. Strank was the leader of the group that hoisted the flag and ordered him to climb the Suribachi to take a telephone line to the top. Accompanying him were Harlon Block, Ira Hayes and Franklin Sousley. Halfway there they were joined by Rene Gagnon, who carried a larger flag to replace the one that had previously been hoisted earlier that day, which was smaller. When they reached the top, Gagnon gave the flag to Strank and explained to Lieutenant Harold Schrier that “Colonel Johnson wants this flag to fly over the top so that all the sons of bitches on this stinking island can see it.” Strank, with the men who had climbed to the top of Suribachi and John Bradley, hoisted the second flag.
