Any day. Every day. Not just this particular weekend. We need to remember those who have sacrificed. Past present and future. I do not know your name - nor which battle you died. I do not know your home, nor the tears that were cried. I do not know where your rest nor the promises broken. I do not your uniform and your fears lay unspoken. But, I know your spirit exists, that your courage is admired. And your sacrifice is honored. By each soul that's inspired. And I offer you from my heart ❤️ Thank you, to guardians unknown. For offering yourselves for us all. That we may keep freedom. Our home. We remember our fallen today tomorrow. Always. #memorialdayweekend#rememberwhen#thefallen#army#navy#airforce#marines#reserves#nationalguard#coastguard#america#landofthefreebecauseofthebrave
It's the start of Memorial Day weekend today.
Lets not forget the ones who sacrificed all for us to enjoy the many freedoms we take for granted. This moment I photographed in FOB Salerno, Afghanistan will always stick with me. People boast about how they can carry all the groceries from the car to the house in one trip while others struggle internally with hoisting lifeless bodies to send home. It's sad when people don't know anything about the military. Continue to live in your bubble while we choose to protect it.
