WWII Memorial: Honoring our Heroes 2014
The WWII Memorial 2004! D-0Day STEPHEN R. BROWN PHOTOGRAPHY: D-DAY WWII Memorial &emdash; Stephen R. Brown Photo It's been a decade since the opening of the WWII Memorial and this time I actually got to go to the ceremony!  During the original opening ceremonies I was making sure I secured this image for the book and so spent my day at the airport waiting for my friend Jeff Tinsley of Smithsonian who  took this picture.  The National Park Service helicopter routinely took Jeff up as images done for the government are "public domain" and so I would have access to the images as long as they didn't get "lost."
