Today’s Top 5

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away --

A real "Star Wars" original. Someone who actually served in the "Grand Army of the Republic". His lapel ribbon indicates he had been a prisoner of war. I wonder if he remembered Senator Palpatine.

Civil War vets in 1915

The time period for veterans of the Civil War at that time would be pretty comparable to today's Vietnam vets.

I've seen trouble.

I bet that old soldier had to "go through some things."

What a face

It's all there: the sadness of knowledge and experience, the wisdom of life and years, the humor in everyday situations, the wonder at each new day.
