A son of Vasil Strank and Martha Grofikova, Michael Strank was born in a Ukrainian Lemko family who moved to Pennsylvania. When he enlisted in the Marine Corps, he didn't think he would become an American hero. He was photographed raising the American flag and flagstaff atop Mount Suribachi with five other servicemen before he was killed on the island during the Battle of Iwo Jima.

The Government of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance created videos telling stories of outstanding Ukrainians in the WW2. Directed by Oles Sanin. Multilingual translation done by InformNapalm team (text by Sveta Kemblowski, voice by Volodymyr Solohub, sound editing by Victor Ogryzko, video editing and mastering by Andriy Garin).

Original video with the Ukrainian soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3SC2...

The project videos are based on the footage of the Central State Cinema Archive of Ukraine named after Gordiy Semenovych Pshenychnyi, British Pathé, Crimean ATR TV Channel and the personal archives of Akhtem Seitablayev, 1+1 TV Channel, Espresso TV Channel and the National Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
