This sounds like a lot of fun. But my only relative from the Armed Forces is retired. Are there any suggestions on how to get some shots?

Congratulations Eric. Thank your son for me. About 5 years ago my son graduated from boot camp (Marine Corps). The pride I felt is hard to explain. Enjoy & get some good shots.

Give him my congratulations and thanks.

My son graduated basic last June and is heading out on his first deployment.

New York is often a hub for soldiers leaving and soldier coming home you might want to check the airport. Also you could go to your local VFW or VFW events, most VFW's are pretty active. Another resource is talking to members of the patriot gaurd (a major biker group that block protesters at soldiers funerals) There are VA assisted living homes as well. When you walk the halls of a VA assisted living home you will see retired veterans through out and they have some great stories and they are usually so humble. I met a guy (whom my family and I have become great friends with) that served in Vietnam and was in the fire fight protrade in the movie We Were Soldiers. It is a wonderful experience talking with veterans. BTW I consider Veterans and Retired Vetrans part of the Armed forces after all they did before what our soldiers are doing now.

My nephew is now home, after being wounded in Iraq. This is a great opportunity to get the camera out and get some pictures of him.

Two questions:
- does it have to be limited to US Armed Forces?
- does the photo have to be taken after the challenge announcement? Can it be an older archived photo?

Any military is fine, and it can be from your archive.
