** A Veterans' Day Reflection **

There were numerous Veterans' Day celebrations around the Capitol today. I took this photo of Army 1st Lt. Alan Reich (ret.) coming from a reception at the Paralyzed Veterans' of America. Reich is also president and founder of the National Organization on Disability, a lifetime member of the PVA, and was a Korean War-era infantryman. Uncalculable respect.

[I tried to go get a police media pass today ... the station was closed for Veterans' Day.]
