Capturing “War and Love”

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Malo Jones , an administration craftsman home stationed at Headquarters Air Force at the Pentagon in the District of Columbia, snaps a photo with his smartphone of a U.S. soldier and a North Korean girl framed in time by the black and white portrait from the Korean War at the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul, Republic of Korea, March 18, 2017. A plaque just below this photo entitled, “War and Love,” reads, “There was love among soldiers even in the war. There was humanitarianism in the bloody battlefield where enemies and allies fought for their lives. In the terrifying battlefield where life and death intersected, they fought relying on their love for families, religious beliefs and trust of fellow soldiers. And when someone was injured, regardless of whether the person was friend or foe, as human beings they took care of the person. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
