Morning Swim Show: Naval Academy Seniors Discuss Re-Creation of Iwo Jima Photo

PHOENIX, Arizona, October 7. TWO seniors on the U.S. Naval Academy’s swimming and diving team join today’s edition of The Morning Swim Show to talk about the popular photo that has gained worldwide attention.

Mike Peribonio and DJ Principato discuss the idea that sparked the re-creation of the photo of the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima, where they are located in the photo and where they found the inspiration. They also talk about life at the Naval Academy, particularly during the government shutdown, and why life isn’t necessarily easier after plebe year. The two are looking to close out their collegiate competition careers successfully and move on to careers in the Navy. Peribonio talks about his upcoming assignment and Principato glows when discussing his trip to flight school after graduation. Be sure to visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews.
