SLEEPING SOLDIERS / candids

One of my many collections of candid shots I gather around the net is a collection of shots of soldiers sleeping. The fact of them being included on a gay blog is in no way meant to demean them for the job that they do. But these shots tell a very different story of the boys who quickly become men who serve in our armed forces. Despite the harrowing and dangerous job they do every day, these photos depict a real sense of vulnerability that lays just under the skin of these remarkable men. They are among my favorites. Even more than the military junk shots I collect. I've tried to the best of my ability to make sure I don't include any glorified porn shots. That WOULD demean the others.
