It’s a very powerful thing to read the names on the wall and think that in a different time, different place it may have been my name someone else was photographing. Each name on that wall has a family, a back story and a future unfulfilled. It was powerful sitting there looking for the 58,195 names on the wall. Each of them has a story that will forever be untold because of what they sacrificed for my country.

The design of the ‘Wall’ was heavily criticized when the designs were first released but it has grown to be among the most significant and most visited monuments in the country. Take some time today to reflect on the sacrifices being made each day throughout the world and thank a soldier if you get the chance.
