A Face from a War

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.

This is the face on one of 19 statues representing a platoon on patrol, on the lookout for the enemy, and for danger lurking around the corner.

I was drawn to the eyes.  They look hollow and haunted to me. I think the artist has successfully captured the sense of weariness and fear in the soldier.

It still goes on.
