Happy Memorial Day
Memorial Day sometimes seems like it's just about barbecues and long weekends. But it's important to take some time to remember the reason for the holiday—to memorialize the fallen soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation's freedom. This series by photojournalist Ashley Gilbertson personifies the Memorial Day idea by bringing us closer to soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's definitely worth spending some time with these powerful images. Thanks to Michael Shaw's BagNews blog for consistently bringing important photographs like this to our attention.
