    The Suicide Charley company flag flies at Range 400 during Integrated Training Exercise 4-22 at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, Calif., July 25, 2022. The Suicide Charley flag originated during the battle of Guadalcanal when 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, commanded by Lt. Col. Chesty Puller, repelled a relentless Japanese assault through the night of October 24, 1942. "C" Company took the brunt of the assault and held the line despite suffering many casualties. The next morning, a flag made of a white, silk parachute flew over Charley Company's area bearing a skull and crossbones with the words “Suicide Charley” written underneath. The Suicide Charley flag has been flown by generations of Marines and continues to be used by Marines to this day. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by David Intriago)
