This is a photo of a purple heart award ceremony, held at the unit which received, by far, the most purple hearts.
The other is a close up of the soldiers at the ceremony. I wonder what's going through their minds?
I am a senior staff officer in the Idaho Army National Guard. I deployed to northern Iraq in in December 2004, and returned home in November 2005. My blog focuses on military life of a Guardsman, as I see it, with forays into other topics from time to time.
