We do photography the right way.

National Guardsmen deploying to Afghanistan

This morning I went to the Hunt Armory in Shadyside to take photos of National Guardsmen saying their goodbyes to family and loved ones before deploying for Afghanistan. The unit was Delta Company, 1st Battalion of the 101st Infantry Regiment (Mechanized).  I can tell you that there were quite a few moments when I had to try to compose myself and fight back tears. It’s been almost two years since I had to say goodbye to my wife before deploying to Iraq. This morning definitely brought back memories and emotions from that day.  Good luck to all of you, and we hope you return safe and sound!
