This is Corporal Sandy Levit. She was recently killed in action in Afghanistan when she tried to rescue a wounded ranger pinned down by insurgents. She didn't hesitate when she tried to save his life. She believed that his life was more valuable than hers and put herself in immediate danger. Acts of heroism and brotherhood are what society needs.
God Bless Our Troops and their families. I was asked to photograph a naval homecoming once. It was beautiful and so emotional. And I will never do it again. Watery, blurry eyes does not produce great results. I was a hot mess.
