This weeks challenge was boots or shoes. The photos I chose are empty boots..soldiers empty boots.
These were at The Vietnam Traveling Wall Memorial a year ago from my archives.
I took this photo a few weeks ago at a local Vietnam Memorial Ceremony.
This is the “battlefield cross” a fallen soldiers helmet, rifle, boots and bayonet which are no longer of use to him. This is what replaced the flag covered caskets that we used to see on the nightly news. Don’t kid yourself, the flag draped caskets are still coming back..we are just not permitted to see them:(
