On this Memorial Day

A thank you to all of those who have served this country, in times of war and peace, in every battle and conflict, in every branch of the military and the reserves, of every ability, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, who made it out alive, injured, or who gave their lives. I hope we as a world can find better solutions than war.

Arlington, Va. (Mar. 24, 2005) - A woman looks at one of more than 1,300 portraits that make up the "Faces of the Fallen" art exhibit at Arlington National Cemetery. The portraits of U.S. military personnel killed in Afghanistan and Iraq brings together artist and families of the fallen heroes. Each rising from the end of a metal pole, the portraits are the same size but their form varies from oil paintings, wood cravings to charcoal sketches. The exhibit is open until Sept. 5, 2005, at the Women in Military Service for American Memorial, located at Arlington National Cemetery. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 2nd Class Daniel J.
