If he is a Major in the army, why is he wearing an enlisted man's jacket? I do like how the man and his girl stand out from the background.
He is a Specialist (enlisted). On leave. Served in Iraq as I recall....but ALL of this has been discussed at length in the earlier post of this photo.
You have a very good memory, Steady. I did publish a similar photo of this soldier but without the girl. That was shortly after November 11, 2009 when I took it.
I remember it well because I caught a LOT of off forum flak from some members here for defending this soldier's right to wear his uniform parts and decorations AND the poppy too.
I also started a separate topic at that time, one focused on an outstanding collection of Remembrance Day (same as the US Veterans Day) photos. Here is a link to that in the archives
