We’re Still at War: Photo of the Day for August 5, 2011

Marines from Sgt. Joe L. Wrightsman’s squad embrace each other after paying tribute to the fallen marine’s monument during a memorial service at Patrol Base Jaker, Afghanistan. Wrightsman died supporting combat operations. “He was like a dad to us,” Lance Cpl. Michael A. Barnhouse said. “He’d take us under his wing and make sure we didn’t mess up. If we did he wouldn’t yell at us, but show us what we did wrong and how to correct it.” (Regimental Combat Team-7, 1st Marine Division Public Affairs, photo by Sgt. Mark Fayloga)
