A volunteer bows his head after placing a wreath on a grave at Arlington National Cemetery,
Arlington, Va., Dec. 14, 2013. Thousands of people helped place over 140,000 wreaths on the
graves of fallen service members as a part of the Wreaths Across America event. (U.S. Army
photo by Sgt. Kristina Truluck/Released)

Don't see this as sadness for those who have passed, but pride that there are still good people
out in the world.

My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

This is very touching and beautiful.  You really captured a tender moment, even if the man paying his respects is a stranger to the fallen solider.

I'm sure it was, it can't be easy catching moments like that on camera.  It's truly beautiful.

I remember when I visited; I saw hill after hill, dotted with those white headstones, my knees hit the ground and I was at a loss for breath. This picture brings me back to that day. Thank you.
