this photo from the Library of Congress American Memory collection: Depression Era to World War II. According to the caption, it depicts an operation on a wounded American soldier by Major George Marks. The soldier was wounded in the arms and shoulders by shrapnel from a Japanese mortar as he was storming a pillbox in New Guinea in 1944. This picture reflects the realities of why we have Veterans' Day.
