    Heartwrenching.

    I wonder what the story is behind that picture?

    I also wonder if he doesn't have a child about that same age at home.

    Those little ones are a lot of the reason we are there. So sad

    He holds the child like it is not the first one he has held. The child does not look scared either. I am like you RN2, I wonder what the story is behind that photo.

    The child looks to be clutching at him for safety....

    I'm so glad these soldiers have been photographed to reveal what they truly are...men and women with huge, caring hearts and courage made of steel.

    Really makes me appreciate all that the troops are doing and how truly lucky we all are to be safely sleeping in our own beds!!

    Thanks for the "perspective"...

    Very touching pic Heather, brought back a lot of memories of another place East of there. Running sick call in the villes, taking care of kiddies when I had 2 little ones at home. Thanks for posting this to you and to Chuck for posting the "sleeping beauty".
