Masterpiece 3--The Thousand Mile Stare

This picture of Lance Cpl. James Miller was taken by Luis Sinco during the battle for Fallujah in December 2004.

It's a masterpiece.

How timeless is that look, that fatigue, that momentary comfort found in a cigarette. "If ya got em, smoke em."

It's begun but it's not over. And it ain't easy.

On this Memorial Day, may we all be thankful for the sacrifices made by those who serve.

Go here to read Sinco's story behind the picture.
