US Armed Forces Recruitment Poster?


Photos: Eugene Richards

Whenever I see this chilling, unforgettable and oh so moving photograph by Eugene Richards, I immediately  think--- official US Armed Forces recruitment poster! And that's not meant to be a "humorous" or snide remark by any means whatsoever.

Something along the lines of...
Still helping bring families together in the 21st century!

Imagine, the ramifications of that poster sized photo in every recruitment center across the land: free quality public school education, free quality higher education, free quality health care, child care and care for the elderly... And less scenes like this...

These pictures are both chilling and touching. To me, these are the marks of a great photographer. Would love to see more work by this person.
