I like the second more, tells more about the story of his life: "the pride of a person who did his part for his country"

Great pic, much respect, my old man is 84 and works daily here in his brick yard, he had a stroke in Dec and struggles to work but wants to push on, its onwards or nothing. Getting old comes to us all, shame we have to give back all that life gives in the end, letting go is not easy for any of us. The feeling of joy and sadness is a strange one.
