Flashback to my first job out of college: Semper Fi - French Style
On November 11th, 1918, an Armistice was signed in a small train car that officially ended WWI - The war to end all wars
. Though WWI didn't in fact end all wars, we still observe the date, which is something I hope we never stop doing.
To the countless Americans, Brits, Canadians, and other volunteers from around the world who helped France defeat Germany not once but twice in my grandfather's lifetime, I salute you. I probably wouldn't be here today had it not been for your sacrifice.
Here is this week's selection of my favorite shots from Roby's blog - minus the color.

who is still in Afghanistan, trying to make the world just a little bit better. Kickass photo editing by yours truly.
Roby, we miss you bro.
