Honor for a Fallen Hero


On a hot July afternoon many gathered to pay tribute to a Fallen Hero.

Marine Lance Cpl. Steven Szwydek was killed in action near Nasser Wa Salamm Iraq during October of 2005.

On this day a bronze memorial was dedicated in his memory. This photograph was taken during the dedication prayer at the statute. A very touching moment at a dedication honoring a young life cut short at the tender age of only twenty.

Good photo, I'm sure it would be good in Black and White as well.

You can sense the sadness there.
