Default A Fitting Remembrance

This is the cover of today's Washington Post magazine.

Kinda says it all.

It certainly does Ted.

I remember years ago back on TV in England where a 'old' woman was placing a poppy on a grave, it had a note on that said: "I've never forgotten you John"
"Gulp!"

Yeah, Ken - "gulp" is right. We remember the warriors but need to remember the loved ones they left behind.

The photographer is Bill O'Leary. He was documenting a story in the magazine about Army Lt. Col. David Cabrera, the first military officer social worker killed by enemy fire, who was simply trying to help the people of Afganistan. That's his wife, August, in the photo; his two young sons were not in this photo. His tombstone reads, "A Soldier of Kindness".

Gulp.

Ted

It show a lot of info at once, still a shame people didn't learn from this.
