Wilcox said, "Although I didn't actually take this photo myself, it's my favorite photo of my brother Tom in Iraq because he took time out to set down his weapon and pet a kitty."He put the photo up on Flickr, the photo sharing site, after he cropped it and did the black and white treatment in Adobe Lightroom.
He said the "original was an ordinary snapshot. This person probably had no idea he captured something so beautiful."On this Memorial Day, thank you to the men and women who give and have given selflessly to their country.
