Service is a Part of Serving

I know its after Memorial Day, but I have to share this picture.

Meet my cousin's hubby - ENS (E3) Greenberg on duty in Afghanistan. He's a Navy medic, and in the photo above, he's helping some of the local kids who needed a doctor.

His wife, has been showing this photo around to friends and family, and getting a positive response from it; I thought I'd put it here to share it further. Please, pass it along. Let people see another side to the guys with guns.

I'd much rather see a photo like this on a newsstand than one of carnage and misery.

Sometimes, if you don't share the good stories, no one else will.

I agree--a friend of mine in Afghanistan now was recently tagged in a picture on facebook playing soccer with some children. From the looks of it, they were all having a great time, regardless of the fact she was in uniform, kevlar, and definitely carrying her sidearm. Her unit is deployed to reach across the cultural divide and connect with Afghan women and their families, but you rarely hear anything about the good they're doing. Just the death tolls.
