Soldier Appreciation

The photographs shown in Memorial Soldiers are for the soldiers in the photographs. Although I don’t get out there as much as I can due to weather, life in general and a thousand other excuses, I will keep working on it. I am aware that some soldiers get missed from time to time but they are not forgotten.

These photographs are just my way of showing my appreciation. I hope that you take the time to properly look at them and that you consider contacting me for your file so that you can use it to make a quality print that you can enjoy for years to come. To me, I find it both sad and unfortunate that I have to point out that this is not a gimmick. I want nothing else but to share.

Thanks,

Rick Carroll

Today as I worked on this photograph I thought of what an Ottawa Police officer had told me days after the shooting of Corporal Nathan Cirillo in 2014. ( an incredible tragedy ) As she guarded the soldiers at the National War Memorial, she told me that she was honoured to be protecting our soldiers. I was so impressed and humbled by her words.
