My buddy and I were swaping photos from Iraq and I saw this one. I wish I could find a larger version, but it still pretty cool. What do you think, Is my buddy a pulitzer level Photographer?

It is a cool picture.

I wish I had my photos from the orphanage my unit adopted in Vietnam. Somehow four or five rolls of 36-exp film disappeared. I know there were some cool shots.

Kids and puppies will steal a Marine's heart faster than a pretty woman.

Outstanding picture. But what about General Order #7?

Well good ol G.O. #7 doesnt apply in this case. The Marine in the photo was one of My fellow team Leaders and he has his Marines posting security a little farther out. We are told to engage the locals in friendly conversation whene ever possible. The Kids being the most important to reach. To me, what makes the picture so good is its is totaly not staged and neither of them know they are being photographed.

I may be able to find the high resolution version if anyone else is interested. Maybe this picture could change a mind or two.
