Marine Corps Veteran Clarence Schutt passed away on Saturday. This photo was taken at his 90th birthday party.

Marine Corps Veteran Clarence Schutt passed away on Saturday. Mr. Schutt fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima in WWII and The Battle of The Chosin Reservoir in The Korean War.

He told amazing stories. He once told me he was walking through the Marine Corps Museum, and he saw his picture on the wall in the museum.

He also told me a story about Iwo Jima and where he was when the iconic picture was taken at the end of the battle.

"The camera man was here and I was right behind him," Mr. Schutt said. "I was just sitting in a hole watching it go up."

Clarence Schutt was 93 years old.
