What a day to be alive
Lauren Williams, Justin Williams, Ryan Barger and Andi Barger spend time together during their annual "Happy Alive Day" picnic in Stockbridge, Michigan, June 16, 2018. Justin and Ryan were U.S. Army Reserve military police Soldiers with the 303rd MP Company who survived a Taliban attack on their base while deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan, June 19, 2012. The Soldiers organize the picnic each year to celebrate life and to show that unity in the military brotherhood is stronger than the enemies who attacked them. Twelve Soldiers from the unit received the Purple Heart from wounds sustained in that attack. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Master Sgt. Michel Sauret)
