The Veteran Outside the Senate
I always have a lot of respect for people who sacrifice themselves for their country, and it is always heartbreaking for me when I see war veterans not taken care of, wherever they are. They have done their bit and the politicians and civilians must do their bit to help them. This is my humble opinion.
I took this picture outside the US Senate with this Vietnam war veteran. He was protesting that his representative in the Congress, was not even willing to see him. Immediately I warmed up to him. He seemed like a nice friendly chap, who despite his bitter experience in life, still loved his country.
