Memorial Day commemorates United States men and women who died while in the military service, from soldiers to doctors to journalists to photographers. For a change, instead of showing the brutality of war, I’ve chosen a set of images shot by great U.S. military photographers in the field.
These photos of sunsets and sunrises were mostly shot in Iraq and Afghanistan. They offer a more subtle look at the army, thanks to beautiful, natural lighting. These images offer a peaceful visual in the middle of war.
This Memorial Day, let’s not forget about the brave and honorable men and women who died serving our country.
