Carrying the names
Lt. Col. Frederick Moss, a senior staff officer for the U.S. Army Reserve Headquarters at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, stares into the camera for a portrait at the North Carolina Veterans Park in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Sept. 27, 2019. Moss runs multiple military races each year — including the Army Ten Miler in Washington, D.C. — while carrying a binder holding the names of the fallen Vietnam War service members. Moss decided to print the binder and run with it in honor of his father, Terry Leon Williams, who is a Vietnam veteran who survived the war, but who lost comrades in combat. Moss recognized that his father’s generation of veterans were rarely welcomed with open arms after they returned from war. His desire to run with the binder is an effort to bring remembrance to their legacy. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Master Sgt. Michel Sauret)
