"In war, there are no unwounded soldiers."


[Interesting how an image like this can be such a powerful object lesson in the importance of context — and the stereotypical assumptions that threaten to drown the combat veterans as they struggle to reintegrate into civilian life. Here’s the actual caption, drafted by the photographer, that accompanies this award-winning photograph:
Lance Cpl. Anthony Espinoza, Bravo Co. 1/5, wipes the salt and sweat out of his eyes which drips down out of his helmet at the end of a day long patrol out of Patrol Base Fires in Sangin District, Helmand province, Afghanistan on May 4, 2011. The 100 plus degree temperatures combined with the humidity of the flooded farm fields make walking and patrolling in the area a daily battle.
This photo was awarded first place in the category of Portrait/Personality for Still Photography in the White House News Photographer Association Eyes of History 2012 contest. Photo courtesy of: David Gilkey. 

Always check your sources before drawing assumptions. Art is powerful, but so often the authentic truth is more powerful than anything one can fashion from the shadows. -R]

And the whole class just went
