Photograph shows a tearful veteran hugging a wounded Marine
 Part of channel(s): Iraq (current event)

A picture tells a 1000 words, and really, no words are needed.

We truly take a lot for granted. Forget the football "heroes" and have a look at this.

This moving photograph of a veteran overcome with emotion while embracing a wounded Marine originally appeared in newspapers in November 2004.

the occasion of this photograph was a Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall on 11 November 2004. The Veteran pictured is Houston James, a survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and the Marine is Staff Sgt. Mark Graunke Jr., a member of an ordnance-disposal team who lost his left hand, one leg and an eye while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July 2003.
