My man's in Iraq

When I got back up on the media stage I felt what was going on behind me was better then what was going on is front of me. This woman holding a photograph of a man she loves really stood out to me as someone who’d make a powerful photograph. Throughout the speeches I would turn around and take a few shots of her totaling about 30 photographs. I find it incredibly hard choosing the photos I like best from an event like this but choosing the one I liked best from this series of this woman was the most difficult.

You know how I feel about this one since my husband is a Marine who served in Iraq

Wow
speechless that has to be the best ever! It brought tears to my eyes

I remember the pain of waiting days to know how your love one is, what is he doing, is he safe, will be come home, what if he doesn't, is he tired, does he need me, is he in pain, and etc.

It hurts....
It's the worst!

This picture is amazing, thank you
