Two Light Moments

There were a lot of interesting Defense Department photos to choose from for this week’s FRIFO, but with all that has gone on in the past few weeks around the world — slaughter of innocents in Connecticut, Syria and Pakistan, political anxiety in Washington and Cairo — we thought it might be better to post a couple of sweet moments captured by the department’s excellent photographers.

Four soldiers from the 6th Engineer Battalion, Combat Airborne build a snowman while waiting for a parachute drop of heavy equipment on Malamute Drop Zone at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska on Dec. 13. A heavy wet snow fell the day before at the installation just north of Anchorage and these soldiers obviously believe in the adage: If life gives you lemons, make lemonade — or at least snowmen.
