From Across The River And Under Shade Trees

"Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave" -Lt. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson

If you haven't read it yet, you need to read Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley. It's an excellent book about the men who raised the second flag on Iwo, as well as all the men who served on Iwo.
