Happy Memorial DayI am on call tomorrow so I posted this today, since I won't have the chance to do so tomorrow. I posted this last memorial day and will continue to post it each Memorial Day through Veteran's Day until all of our men and women are home safe.Happy Memorial Day by Guillermo-del-Lucca
To the soldier,
I wish that I could tell you how I feel, but words are awkward.
Though I do not know you, it grieves me that you have gone.
Perhaps I see myself in you; I once made the same decision, but by fate I managed to avoid the burden that you carry.
It seems so unfair, there you are, half my age and yet you carry it.
Though you went willfully, I wish that you were home. By all rights you should be. No one should have expected this of you.
We started this to protect our children, but have failed. Instead we let you grow up in its shadow and have left it for you to fix.
But you always seem to be the one to go. The one that we should have protected becomes the protector.
How can I express the admiration and adoration that I feel when I look up
PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity WeekPE: Decorating Your Profile by SimplySilent
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.

Yep, you read it right. Female combat photographer/videographer. My job is my life, I'm happiest out in the nastiness with my 'family'. By the end of 2014, I'll be a photography instructor for the future combat cameramen of all branches of the U.S. Military. I specialize in comdoc/photojournalism and am beginning to build my portfolio for equestrian events.
Interested in a shoot? I'm currently located in central Maryland and spend a lot of time in southern Maryland.
My real family consists of my husband, two of the most awesome boys in the world, a cat, a cabbitt, and two rescue horses that I take care of on weekends (they're available for adoption, just sayin'). I adore them even though they try to steal my camera gear every chance they get. My life depends on caffeine, especially NOS and Starbucks.
