Henry Oliver "Hank" Hansen (December 14, 1919 – March 1, 1945) was a United States Marine in World War II. He took part in the first flag raising over Iwo Jima, and was, for a time, mistakenly identified as one of the six men in the famous photograph of the second flag raising.



Rene Gangon is rumored to be the 'one' of the six who really wasn't in the photo.
