My 2009 series titled "Why Am I A Marine?" about a Marine platoon in Afghanistan opened at the NMMC in Qantico on April 4th. It was great to see some of the lads turning up, Hambone, Nails and John and his family, Andrew's mum and other Marine parents. Thank you for coming and making the event incredibly special. I made a presentation and talk on the night and the following day conducted a workshop with Combat Camera and other Marine media and public affairs from the base. My original journal the series comes from is in the special photography and rare books collection of the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
