April 20, 2012 – Portrait a Day

20 Apr

It was an honor to photograph the event that took place in Kodiak. Coast Guard Base Kodiak personnel lined the streets wearing their dress uniforms to pay respects.  Two Coast Guardsmen who were killed April 12 at Communication Station Kodiak were placed in a Coast Guard C-130 after their funerals.  They were flown to Anchorage to eventually find their final resting places. May God bless their families and friends. Honor.  Respect.  Devotion to Duty.  I am proud to be a part of this organization and am blessed to have taken these photos.

Camera Specs:
Nikon D700, ISO 1000, 24-70mm, 1/125, f/5, no flash fired.

    May you never have to photograph an event like that again. Peace be with you and all your Coastie family.
