Little Tributes for Big Men.

SONY DSCPara kay Col. Chuck.

It’s easy to think that a Marine’s duty is only to his country but yesterday, Juan Portrait (our group of photographers) was invited to the family day of the Philippine Marine Corps. As we photographed their families, we were reminded of how human our soldiers are–carrying babies, trying hard not to smile, or hold hands with their spouses. We may look up to them when they look most brave in full battle gear but personally, I feel their strength most when I see them in plainclothes with their loved ones. I’m reminded of what they give up to keep us safe and I’m grateful–not just for their service but because in turn we become adopted members of their families too.

Thank you.
