Band of Brothers by CombatCamera09 Band of Brothers by CombatCamera09
Soldiers with Troop B, 2nd Squadron, 106th Cavalry Regiment finish a hard day's training at Camp Ripley, Minn. July 22. (U.S. Army photo by Pfc. Alison Lampe/released)

This is my favorite photo. The men were tired, they were hot, cranky, and had been in the field for nearly four days, they needed showers and food other than MREs, but bless them, they followed an over enthusiastic Pfc. into a field at sunset so she could get the shot of a lifetime.

It ended up getting picked up by TIME's website and the DoD's homepage.

The Cavalry boys are from the armory my dad worked at, where I was recruited, in my current hometown, and for me it was so special to have everything come full circle. I hope it's only the beginning.

Also, no Photoshop, I promise, except to size it down because the file was absolutely huge.

What's there to say that hasn't already been said.  The issuance of a Daily Deviation and the pickup by Time and the DoD is enough to say everything about the quality of the photograph from a purely photographic point of view.  But the subject, the timing, the message, all of that is best said without words but rather a solemn and quiet respect.

Just saw your photo on TV.  A National Guard ad during the Honda Indy Toronto 2 race on NBC.  Very nice.
