Running into the past in the future
This top photo is perhaps my favorite photo of any I’ve ever taken. The set, plus one more that for some reason I didn’t keep on file, won me a first-place Photo Essay award in 2008 from the Society of Professional Journalists. :)
The soldier saluting in the background is the brother of the deceased. The two were fellow Marines.
The next photo is of his parents, his mother clutching the American flag after it was handed to her by a soldier helping to bury her son.
