Featured in Where on Earth is This

As the light softened and the shadows darkened I returned to my car, even though the entire day was quiet, the quiet, now that most were gone, was arresting. I stopped and scanned the graves spread out in front of me. The sun disappeared over the horizon, the only sounds the birds chirping gently and I took this one last photo, packed my camera away, leaned against my car and lit a cigarette, reflecting on the day. It occorred to me that war and the consequences are too easily forgotten by me and most I would guess but it lingers far too long if not forever for those who have lost a friend, family member, fellow soldier or a loved one.

*This is the fourth in a series of four images with commentary that for me sum up the emotions I witnessed and felt of a day I spent at the National Cemetary for veterans outside the Indiantown Gap Military Reservation in Central PA. That day and these photos serve to remind me of the reality of war and the impact on those who have lost loved ones. I urge you to view them in order Mourning, Comfort, More Comfort and Last of the Day and hopefully take a minute to remember those who made the sacrifice, both the casualties and the survivors.
