Lance Cpl. Carlos A. Aragon

This afternoon I was assigned to photograph a funeral for a local marine killed in Afghanistan. While these types of assignments are neither fun nor easy, I am appreciative of the opportunity to get to experience and document them. Taking photographs of people in such pain sometimes feels like one of the most inappropriate things you can do at a funeral. So, needless to say, I was very grateful when a marine turned to me and said, "Thanks for what you do."
