Historical Perspective

It is kind of sobering to realize that in less than 3 years (from when this photo was taken) most of these "boys" will be in the military, and in the middle of the biggest war in the 20th century.

Diversity

I count at least two Elves (front, left) and maybe a third one behind 'em.
