Our Fallen Heroes

Because today is Veterans day I wish to say a few words... and I am very humbled as I try to formulate them....


I wish to dedicate this image to all of the veterans that have served our great country.. and for those who have died serving it...


Please today.. if you know a veteran or see a veteran.. tell them how much you appreciate their service to our country.. they need to be recognized and thanked.. not just on Veterans Day.. but every day.. For without their service and sacrifice.. we surely would not be a free nation today..


I also want to say a few words about this image here.. I captured this one at my first and only visit to Arlington National Cemetery about 5 years ago.. I was so humbled by what I saw there.. that I could scarcely photograph the scenes.. I was literally on hollowed ground.. I know I was.. I could feel it.. and I could feel the sacrifices of all those souls who lay in this place... To them I am eternally grateful.. they payed the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms we enjoy today..


So please thank a veteran today.. you will feel better for it.. and you will know it is the right thing to do...
