18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Remembering Those Who Served

They could not ask for a day off when they were weak, sleepless, or sick. Duty called, and they answered. Now they are resting in columbarium niches all around the country, lined up just like in their days of glory. I could at least honor and acknowledge their existence and service with photos on Veterans Day.
