    1. Those photos, while capturing iconic moments, tend to break my heart. The horrors of wars, both foreign and domestic, are chilling. However, we must remember to ensure they are not repeated.

  1. They don’t make anymore like these people were. They are all so very special however you may think and feel about them.

  2. All of these photos remind me of my papaw!!! My Mamaw has shown me all of his pics from way back when he was in war. She also has several pics from him building the RR tracks in West Virginia!!! I love seeing the captures all in black and white. That tells a story themselves!!!!!
