This a photograph by Robin Hood of an injured Vietnam War veteran. I had previously seen it in the Newseum because it won the 1977 Pulitzer Photography Prize. What really jabs me emotionally about the picture are the solemn or sad faces of the background children in the parade. Although the event is meant to celebrate war veterans, the people around the handicapped man with his child all seem to share his pain.
