Gail,
Well this makes total and complete sense! I don't always agree with the choices that the judges make on the winners here but this one is beyond deserving. Gail, I hope that you will consider framing these and seeing if they will hang them in some appropriate Veteran's locations. The content, the context, the composition of the series of Veterans shots that you did were superior! You should be VERY proud of this work! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
