  • Great photos...

    Here are two pictures that were awarded first and second place,
    General Reporting Division, at the Picture of the Year International
    this year. Very very touching
    photos.

    First Place


    Todd Heisler The Rocky Mountain News
    When 2nd Lt. James Cathey's body arrived at the Reno Airport, Marines
    climbed into the cargo hold of the plane and draped the flag over his
    casket as passengers watched the family gather on the tarmac. During
    the arrival of another Marine's casket last year at Denver
    International Airport, Major Steve Beck described the scene as one of
    the most powerful in the process: "See the people in the windows?
    They'll sit right there in the plane, watching those Marines. You
    gotta wonder what's going through their minds, knowing that they're on
    the plane that brought him home," he said. "They're going to remember
    being on that plane for the rest of their lives. They're going to
    remember bringing that Marine home. And they should."



    Second Place



    Todd Heisler The Rocky Mountain News
    The night before the burial of her husband's body, Katherine Cathey
    refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the
    last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below
    the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and
    played songs that reminded her of 'Cat,' and one of the Marines asked
    if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. "I think
    it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it," she said. "I think
    that's what he would have wanted."
