I am fortunate to be able to drive around anywhere I want to go and create photographs of public places. I have never been detained or questioned. If I lived in a country like China or Russia with a repressive that controls what its citizens do that I would probably not be able to post the things I have. It because of the men and women who proudly took an oath to defend the constitutions and the rights granted to the citizens of the United States of America that give us the freedom to pursue our happiness. I have always been a civilian and could never fully understand the sacrifices they have made in protecting my freedom. All I can say is Thank You.
P.S. In the photo is my Father standing on the beach in Vietnam when he served in the army. He now a proud member of the VFW and it was sad when he told me that he has had several people ask him what VFW stands for. I know what it stands for, and I can’t thank and honor them enough for all they have done.
