Photo Hunt-Veteran/Military

Standard

‘The measure of life after all, is not it’s duration but it’s donation’-(CT Boom) was the verse I chose to grace this Art Trading Card for a swap I am in. We are not really a military family. I do know my father was on a ship during the Korean war, but my brothers were to young to go to Vietnam.
This is for the Civil War. I chose the Gettysburg Cemetery right here in Pennsylvania as I’ve been in that area a few times. I think the battlefield conjures up more images of gore rather than the peaceful cemetery. But remembering the magnitude of causalities pitting North against South is astounding-over 600k! The flower is a poppy for remembrance.
