This is my Father-in-Law. He is now in his 90's, but landed on Omaha Beach during D-Day when he was a young man. He still sets off metal detectors in airports from the shrapnel that's still in his body. He has two Purple Hearts, and a Bronze Star for Bravery (among other commendations). He's not as young and fit as he once was, but he's still a hero to us! (The main photo is a personal photo). (4 years and 210 days ago)

This looks familiar.

author says:

Yeah, a while back I had a similar one that I think I posted in the forum for some advice on (which I actually like better), but it used a photo for the soldier that I couldn't track down to get permission for. So I started this one from scratch.
