Even 7,777 miles away from home you never forget.

A lot have asked me who it is. It's me in the photo using a tri-pod... Thank you for comments.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-08-07
Caught by ~Boozshey Yes, at seven years old this photo is considered "ancient" by deviantART standards, but it reminds us that on any battlefield are men and women who love their families (and their mommies) very much. ( Featured by 1pen )

in last 10 years, each day, a lot of soldiers have been crying in Afghanistan just like this.

 

they are right to cry. because they are not there for democracy or freedom or any other good thing.

 

dozen thousands man "just like him" wasted there to protect their drug bosses' capital.

 

and everyday this wastage increasing multiplying. and the existance of those man make no profit of any countries' fredom or democracy.

 

and all of you still continue to sing same song "freedom and democracy" ?????

Freedom and democracy... You jest I presume!

Either that or you're one of the gullible masses who swallow government lies and militarist propaganda.

No doubt this post will be nuked like the last one...

This brings so many tears to my eyes. I lost my mom 2 years ago as of last week so when I see someone I honor(i.e., military like yourself) showing love and respect for their parents, it warms my heart. God bless you and God bless the wonderful woman who raised you. <3

Aww, this really sweet. It so cute to see this full grown man in the military writing on the wall about how much he loves his mommy like a little boy. :love: I don't know if he's really in the military or not, I don't think that's important, he might just be modeling for the photo. The whole point of this piece is to be symbolic and to express a meaning and emotion, just like most art.

This picture; whether the man is in the military or not, is a good representative of how most of our soldiers feel. They miss their homes, and they miss their families. I think, we should all stop the bickering and just look at the symbolism of this picture.

This is a really cool pic. But in my opinion; If you love your mommy, don't join that bullshit. There's no reason to be there. Just kept as sheep and kettle all for selfish reasons by those without virtue.
I've seen many moms without their sons because of it. Mothers don't need that kind of pain

I just thought that I would point out that the last few comments on this user's page are about him going into Iraq, seeing as how he hasn't been active for 50+ weeks I have this sinking feeling that he died in service. I just want everyone who's posting negatively on here to know that. I hope you feel ashamed of the way you act here. And if you don't I really hope that the universe comes and teaches you just how painful hate can be. No matter what form it comes in. You're terrible people. 
It doesn't matter if you're patriotic or not. 

You should be so ashamed of yourselves.

Don't listen to this dickweed.  The guy who posted the photo is a poser and DEFINITELY not in the military.  Anyone who has been in the military knows he's definitely NOT wearing anything that is "up to date" with US Military dress code.  Those camoflauge have been out of date since 2001.  So if he took this...it would of have to of been LONG before the Iraq war started.  Which means, it is fake as shit.  The guy just posted something fake in an attempt to draw attention out of people that doesn't belong to him, but to real military of the world that deserve the attention because they ACTUALLY DID experience the hardships of war.  He probably just went inactive like 100,000 of accounts do a day.  Or he died from things definitely NOT war related.  Fuck, he probably got hit by a bus from karma catching up.

The picture is symbolic and applies to any soldiers, which invokes the feelings of tragedy, not necessarily this person per se. Sounds like you've experienced it more or less personally, but I'd advice you not to use such language just because others are of a different view than you.

:icondistantwanderer:
DistantWanderer Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
I could care less what your advice is and frankly I'll use whatever language I choose.   You have your opinion, which is a right no one can take away, but it doesn't mean I have to listen to it or care either way. 

As for it being symbolic, the photographer blatantly implies he was taking the picture in a war zone...which he obviously wasn't.  And by doing so, he is trying to get attention from people that he doesn't deserve.  The attention belongs to the EU, UN, and US forces that actually WENT to war and to deal with this problem.  It would of been less disrespectful if the artist had said in the description: "This is a tribute to all the military that have dealt with the hardship" instead of implying he was there.  Which he obviously wasn't.

But you seem to be heeding it somewhat now anyway... :P

I'm not one to argue that he really was there, but I find your ideas of him trying to steal attention intriguing and slightly ridiculous. I mean, wouldn't he have more deviations and be more online if that were the case?

Do note that it was submitted in 2006, he has a total of 4 deviations and hasn't been online for 50 weeks.

It catching a Daily Deviation is pure luck if anything (or seems so at least).

God, the next time you decide to undermine me how about you say it to my comments instead of trying to change someone else's opinion when they obviously believe what all of the other hundreds of people think about this. You're so rude it is uncanny. I do believe that your parents raised you quite wrong. 

You should respect other peoples opinions, not call them "dickweed"s just because you don't agree with them. :iconfacepalmplz:

You are so bloody ignorant it's actually lowering my I.Q. 

However, after browsing your favorites I can understand why you do not appreciate this. Someone who is only interested in disgusting depictions of the female anatomy in a overly indulged anime-esque style obviously has no real appreciation for art at all. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't know real art if it bit you in your butt.

Well, I've tried to save from patronizing you until now, but it seems you have chosen to do so to me, so I suppose it is only fair.

This is taken from a 19 year old girl who couldn't possibly know much of anything about life.  The hilarious thing is, you believe you do, with all your might, until you are older and realize just how stupid you were.  When I was your age I had already been fighting for my life for two years and fighting to save the lives of the people around me.  So, enjoy your outlandish opinion about how you think you know the world, as I will do the same for mine.  Why should you enjoy it?  Because people like me and other military members around the world risked their lives and some even gave them, to protect it so you could. 

I find this feeble excuse for attention by the photo poster to be disrespectful for all military members that have gone through the struggle.  You: you think anything you say is right.  Which is fine.  At your age, everyone does, so be as head strong as you like.

I'm glad you did your time in the army, I salute you. I think what you did is great. However, while I support the army and all that grand hoopla, it's really not my place to say anything about it. Other than I think that this person has every right to express their opinion. And if it offends you, that's not really my problem. 

Oh man, oh dude. You are so hilarious. I love people like you. You're calling me head strong, but I'm not the one calling some one out on how I think they act.

Sorry to burst your warm tender, 'my country is always right,' bubble, but...

Isn't his job to be dropped into other people's countries so he can waste other mommies sons... mommies who just happen to be in some blast zone when a drone drops it's payload on some terrorist SUSPECT...

Sure the terrorist suspect is history... but so are all the overseas mommies... and their kids.

But those mommies don't matter do they? Being in someone else's country and only good for target practice.

Actually I'm not sorry to burst your patriotic bubble... Next time take some shots of the 30 or so blast victims who are NOT terrorists, but are mommies.
