Thank You, Veterans

This picture always moves me. Here are some details I found out about it:

The occasion of this photograph was a Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall on 11 November 2004. The veteran pictured is Houston James, a survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and the Marine is Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr., a member of an ordnance-disposal team who lost his left hand, one leg, and an eye while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July 2003.

Honor our veterans today, for all their efforts, large and small.

(souce: deskmerc) We can never thank them enough.
