Dragon Valley, Korea: Almost exactly one year ago Captain Lance Brender asked me to photograph his incoming change of command parade. From that day forward our friendship grew and I became his go to photographer for army events. It was quite special retuning to where it all began on what seemed nearly an identical fall day to watch him relinquish command of HCC First Tank 1-72. It was clear through my lens that Captain Brender had earned the respect of his troops and made many great friends during his command. I wish him and his family all the best back home in the USA.
