This is Sergeant Michael Knapp, saying goodbye to his new-born daughter, Kinsley. It was the last time he got to hold her. On May 18th, 2012 he was killed overseas. We miss you, Michael, you are fallen, but not forgotten. -- Telling your baby that Daddy was a hero just doesn't seem enough. At least she can see from this picture how much he loved her. #provestra
Leaving his new baby to protecting our freedom, not knowing if he'll ever see her again. God Bless our soldiers, and their familes, for the sacrifices they make! Ugh!!!!!! My heart aches!!
This soldier was deployed, leaving his tiny newborn daughter. Sometimes we forget the sacrifices made on our behalf until a picture like this puts everything into perspective. Grateful for true heroes.
This soldier is about to be deployed and is saying goodbye to his newborn daughter. It's a powerful example of the sacrifices our nation's bravest make every day. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

A very tender moment of reflection. ---------------------------------------------- A friend of a friend, posted this picture of a military dad waiting to board his flight, trying to say goodbye to his newborn daughter. Made me hug my kids a little longer, and made me fill with gratitude for the incredible sacrifices our military members make. We should be grateful every day for all they do for our freedom!

EOD Soldier says goodbye to his newborn daughter. This picture just pierces my heart.

Soldiers coming home You will never understand this unless you've been a part of a military family. These are REAL heroes.
Soldiers coming home ~ You will never understand this unless you've been a part of a military family. God bless each one of them and their families for their service and sacrifices for all of us. A humble "thank you" pales in comparison.
Off to war... THESE. MEN. ARE. HEROES>>>> no I hate this I hate when people use the word men when referring to military personnel. As a female soldier it is insulting when people only see soldiers as men. I'm a woman, I'm a soldier, and I am proud. I just wish more people would see that women are becoming more independent and self-sufficient.
Coming home. #Military #powerful #photography #iconic #emotional #Heroes

Soldiers, Children, People, Photo, War, Military
I know this is so sad but I feel our military needs to let the world know how much they love. This is how our military are. They are loving men trying to help countries who hate us and hate their own people God Bless our soldiers.
Michael Yon took this photo in Iraq after a suicide car bomber drove into a Stryker vehicle. There were several children gathered waving at the soldiers passing by when the explosion occurred. Major Bieger found Farah, the little girl, and hurried to a hospital but died on their way there.
I know this is so sad but I feel our soldiers need to let the world know how much they love. This is how our soldiers are. They are loving men trying to help. and receive condemnation from the very people they are trying to protect and serve. Most of these men are so young and will suffer so much from yet service. God Bless our soldiers.
Think of what they come back with have having to see and do and our country barely acknowIedges them. I know this is so sad but I feel our soldiers need to let the world know how much they love. This is how our soldiers are. They are loving men and women trying to help countries who hate us and hate their own people God Bless our soldiers.
Reality of War is that innocent children and civilians are harmed as well as our own soldiers. Is it not ENOUGH already. Stop the War.
Major Bieger cradling Farah, the little girl who died in hie arms is one of the most potent image of the evil of war and the goodness of our soldiers. God help those in need in this troubled world: God bless the protectors. http://www.michaelyon-online.com/little-girl.htm
To our service personnel...you are my heroes! "Major Mark Bieger found this little girl after the car bomb that attacked our guys while kids were crowding around. The soldiers here have been angry and sad for two days. They are angry because the terrorists could just as easily have waited a block or two and attacked the patrol away from the kids. Instead, the suicide bomber drove his car and hit the Stryker when about twenty children were jumping up and down and waving at the soldiers. Major...
War soldier carries baby photograph | Photographer Snaps Dramatic Iraq Photo
PHOTO BY Michael Yon for TIME Magazine: A U.S. Army soldier comforts a child fatally wounded by a car bomb blast in Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad. "Many people say this is the most important photograph of the Iraq war. The image most completely embodies my experience throughout Iraq. Countless people have asked for reprints, but I wanted to give the matter some thought. I did not want to diminish the symbolism of this photograph, and the American soldiers who risked their lives to save this little girl. When these soldiers finally returned to the United States, they asked my permission to present a copy to Bruce Willis at “The Punisher's Ball.” When I saw the photo so tastefully framed, I realized this could make a beautiful gift." www.michaelyon-online.com/
this seriously brought me to tears....A family photo that shows a little girl beside her father and his fellow soldiers in uniform as they prepare to go to war. Four-year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn’t want her daddy to go to Iraq. So much so, that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn’t let go. No one had the heart to pull her away. God Bless the military and EVERY sacrifice they have to make

Great breed for being around little ones!

The most powerful ability of super heroes lies not in their strength but in their humanity. Our service men and women are still very human. | beautiful photo of a military man and his baby.
MAY GOD BLESS THEM!! The most powerful ability of super heroes lies not in their strength but in their humanity. Our service men and women are still very human.They are fighting to save the next generation from Tyranny and oppression!
The most powerful ability of super heroes lies not in their strength but in their humanity. God bless our military!
Describe this scene from the point of view of the soldier. What is his homecoming like? How does he react when he sees his baby for the first time? What is he feeling as he cuddles his newborn close to his body? Contrast the sweet baby scent with the smells he has left behind in war, the soft skin with the torn and terrible wounds he has witnessed. You take it from here.
