I had a chance to photograph my dad last week. He spent 28 years in the United States Marine Corps. He entered service as a Private and retired a Major. 1 tour in Vietnam and was there for the Tet Offensive in 1968.
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.
