What armies and how much of war I have seen, what thousands of marching troops, what fields of slain, what prisons, what hospitals, what ruins, what cities in ashes, what hunger and nakedness, what orphanages, what widowhood, what wrongs and what vengeance

 
Clara Barton (1821–1912), U.S. Civil War nurse and founder of the American Red Cross. As quoted in Angel of the Battlefield, ch. 20, by Ishbel Ross (1956).

  1. Another poignant photo, Chessie. Reminds me of a docuentary I saw last year “The Way We Get By.”

  2. What angers is me is how soldiers are so underpaid, and are often not given the care and treatment needed once they get home. That’s as true here in Canada as in the States. Veterans should be first in line for social services and entitlements, not queuing up with everyone else.

  3. This picture is heart breaking for some reason. And it has so much character! I haven’t stopped by for a while Chessie but I’m still a huge fan of your photos πŸ™‚
