I also got hugged by a couple of soldiers, one of those moments that will stay with me for a very long time. They were a young man and wife with a baby and were taking each other's photo in front of the column of the place they were from. Each column around the memorial has a State marked on it. I asked them if they would like me to take a photo of the three of them and they were only too happy to give me their camera. We chatted for a while afterwards and I ended up telling them how special they were to me, to our family, at which they both gave me a big hug. Have to say I choked up at the sight of them walking away. Soppy old thing I may be but I just had to capture that moment so that ten years down the road I could look back and remember.
