Serving Abroad…Through Their Eyes, the military


Fox last night showed a few of these photographs from  “Serving abroad. through their eyes”. I was sad to see Life magazine fold. Often a picture tell s story so much better than words. Here is a link to the 12 who received top honors from the State Department’s program: Here

In commemoration of Veterans Day, the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Art in Embassies (AIE) and the U.S. Department of Defense proudly announce the 12 “Best in Show” featured in AIE’s 50th anniversary “Serving Abroad…Through Their Eyes” photography exhibition. A year ago on Veterans Day, Military, Civil Service and Foreign Service personnel were invited to submit photographs illustrating their life while serving abroad. More than 3,200 images were submitted, from which 161 finalists were chosen; ultimately, the 12 “Best in Show” were identified. These photographs, selected by a panel of distinguished photo-journalists, depict themes of friendship, places, faces, loss or triumph, providing a window on the complexity, diversity and courageous work performed by America’s heroes throughout the world.

      Trying to go a bit afield, as photos are very popular, and tell the story almost as well as words often,
