Salute to All Veterans

This is a picture of my dad during the Korean War. He is standing in front of a bunker. He always had his camera with him.

Sad how so many of our fathers have worn military uniform - and a good day to realize that is why (so far) I've not had to do so.

A fine shot to commemorate this special day. I too served in the Korean war.

@Slackwater Don: Thank you for your service. It means a lot. I was a Vietnam Era Army nurse.

the perfect way to remember your father on this site !!!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

What a perfect way to honor your father's service on this special day!! It hits home when there's a photo of men "out in the field", rather than posing in military "dress". I can only imagine how many more Iwo Jima photographic "moments" there would have been if there were cameras with memory cards (rather than film) out in the fields. :-)
