Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

The Vietnam War Memorial

This photograph is a blending of two photos. The first is the panel on the memorial and the second is the image of the three combat GI's statue that was selected out of a separate photograph that included trees, people and park benches. The image of the wall was originally skewed because it was shot on an angle. Photoshop provides a method of dragging (skewing) the edges in order to align the image to the edge of the photo. The selection of the statue images was then blended with the panel depicting the names of the fallen.
Check the links on my blog list for more information concerning the wall and how each panel relates to those who sacrificed.
