We love our military community and we are always honored to be asked to photograph events celebrating our service-members. Retirements like this one are an extra special occasion, as they are so bitter-sweet. My father retired from the Army after 30 years of service and my husband has recently retired from the Army as well, and I’ve seen first hand the transitioning process. Service-members put their lives on hold to serve their country for so many years and while retirement is a well-deserved new chapter, it can also be an anxious time in a Soldier’s life. We were honored to witness and document the celebration of this Soldier’s career and accomplishments as he was recognized for all his years of honorable service to our country.
