At the end of World War II a young Bible college student in Illinois met Ira Hayes on the streets of Chicago. In an effort to offer him hope, Bill shared John 3:16. Ira stopped him, “Do you remember Iwo Jima? I’m the man who put the flag on Mt. Suribachi. They’re building a monument to us. I don’t need God.” Three months later, national papers carried a story of a 32 year old man who died of alcoholism and tuberculosis. His name was Ira Hayes.
