Bag’s Take-Away:
Cathedral of War. Light shines through tiny windows as U.S. soldiers prepare for a gun battle with the Taliban. Note the grave-sized hole near the door. Beyond the disconnect between gunfire and the beautifully backlit dwelling, some might catch the feeling that war is eternal and that we’re fighting for a higher purpose, too. Maybe that’s why this photo made all the major new image galleries today.

Bag’s Take-Away:
I don’t understand the display….if the name patches are of those who have died or if they represent an homage by fellow soldiers. I think it’s the latter. Either way, touching and sad.
