I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
I like to think Eastlyn Parker and Cooper Richmond (my characters in Lavender Beach) would applaud war veterans like the ones in the video below who unveil their injuries to the world, proud to rock their bodies.
Taken by photographer, Michael Stokes–known for his book Bare Strength—the photos feature servicemen and women from all four branches of the military who lost limbs in combat. A little Sunday spicy salute to the brave men and women who sacrifice in service to our country.
