A legacy of service
My son's a photojournalist, former Bradley driver, in the US Army. He's currently in Baghdad. His name is Sean Riley. He's a Staff Sergeant. He just returned from a 15-day leave to see the family. The photo was taken in June 2007.
Both grandfathers were vets (WW II, Korea), I'm a vet (Vietnam), and the saga continues.
Photo was taken by photojournalist Dr. Barry Goldstein.
