    He was “there.” One can tell the look. What have they done to our service men and women – it is unforgivable.

  • Thanks margot :) updated info in sidebar makes this a more poignant image…

    Another observation (for what it’s worth): the almost white hand front center is perfect and makes the face stronger.
