And i'd like to add that you should make another one, but on the ground should be a bunch of dead bodies of the Empires enemies. That would be really awesome!

Love it! And I'm so happy it's stormtroopers and not clone troopers, I love me some oldschool Star Wars. ^^

This one reminds me of a stormtrooper in IV. He was checking a fallen comrade, I guess checking if he could still be saved. And then Vader comes in, and this guy stands at attention rather than finish helping his friend. Stormtroopers may be fanatics, but won't some of them be motivated by fear as much as anything else? And not just fear for their lives, fear of not living up to what's expected of them, maybe?
I'm not sure your nice pic is meant to be very thought provocative, but it did get me thinking. I see your pic is nearly identical to the photo, down to the curl of the flag, the position of the soldiers and the lay of the land. You liken stormtroopers to American soldiers, reminding us how they are not just scary white armour suits - there's people inside those suits, and won't most of them believe they're doing the right thing, fighting for a good cause? But you're also likening American soldiers to stormtroopers. If someone sees a platoon coming down his home street, what would he see? One guy who joined the army to get out of his old neighbourhood, another who joined up because he followed in his father's footsteps, one who joined up mostly out of sheer patriotism, etc.? Or will he see helmets and uniforms all the same, come to exact the will of their overlords, willing to kill and die to achieve it?

This would be even better if it were Clone Troopers in place of Stormtroopers. And instead of Iwo Jima, they could be raising the flag at Geonosis.
