It's Never Too Late To Say Thank You

This past week I had the honor of photographing a gentleman in his mid 90s who had served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.  He flew PBY aircraft over the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, protecting the United States from a Japanese attack from the north. He was very proud of his service and was one of the most polite, sincere men I've ever met. As a "thank you" for his service which occurred almost 30 years before I was born, I created a collage for him to surprise him when he came back to the studio to pick up his head shot.  When I presented it to him, he was extremely moved as was I from hearing his story.
