Donald in Light

Donald has led a life full of twists and turns. He began his adulthood serving his country in the French Indonesian war in 1956 — almost 70 years ago. He later served in Korea and in another war that he will not talk about. He has had cancer numerous times and is still fighting lung cancer. I took his photo as he sat in the window of an old barn in New Mexico. The light of the setting sun graces his face and his expression leads us to believe that he is content. At age 86, I believe that he is satisfied with his life and that his future holds promise.
