Saying goodbye during the deployment ceremony of Battery "A", 2nd Battalion, 138th Field Artillery. Carroll County. October 14, 2006.
know the names of the young couple in this picture, but I know the situation.
He and other members of his Carrollton-based National Guard unit were
being deployed that day to Afghanistan. They'll spend several weeks
of training at an Army base in New Jersey, then they're off to war.
you may wonder why I chose to use this photo on my website, which is mostly
scenes of rural Kentucky. Well, this is a rural Kentucky scene. I
shot this while on assignment for state government. It was the second
National Guard deployment from a small Kentucky town that I had photographed
in two weeks, the other being a unit from Bardstown on October 5.
