"Although still recovering from his injuries overseas, Sgt. Sanchez insisted on leaving his electric wheelchair to walk the flag down Main Street, U.S.A., saying “If it’s for the colors, I’ll walk.”


“This picture is taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a crossand candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan . The amazing thing is that they only do it on theweekends. They put up this graveyard andtake it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch overit at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. andD.O.D. on it.”

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.
