Veterans Day

My father passed away this fall.  He served in WWII.  They played taps at his funeral.  His father (my grandfather) was gassed in WWI.  His father (my great grandfather) served as a naval officer during the Spanish American War, WWI and WWII (he died at sea).  This still life was made for Veterans Day.  The WWI era Barclay lead soldiers are standing on the November 11, 1918 edition of the Washington Post with the headline:  “Armistice Signed.”
