A prayer for the fallen
World War II veterans and others in attendance bow their heads during the invocation praying for their fallen comrades who weren’t able to be with them that day as part of a commemoration ceremony for the 70th anniversary to the end of World War II Aug. 15, 2015, at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake, Wash. During times of turmoil and war, mankind always looks to religion and religious figures for comfort, especially those serving in military units. Today, military chaplains continue aiding the men and women serving in uniform with spiritual and moral support. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
