   The exhibit, "Memories of World War II Photographs from the Archives of The Associated Press," will be on display at the Wiregrass Museum in Dothan now through July 14.

   The Dothan Eagle reports ( that the museum becomes one of more than 20 museums throughout the U.S. that have shown the exhibit since it originally opened to the public on May 24, 2004, at Washington's Union Station.

   It features 126 photos from all theaters of World War II and the home front and includes AP photographer Joe Rosenthal's classic Iwo Jima flag-raising in 1945.
