Amateur photographer Frank Glick was on his way to work when he drove through Fort Snelling National Cemetery early one morning. He spotted a bald eagle through the mist, perched on a gravestone, and snapped shots with his aging but ever-present camera. It’s going viral!

Jon Tevlin of the Star Tribune notes that requests for the photo, and use of the story, have come from the Department of Veterans Affairs, military publications, Arlington National Cemetery. Soldiers in Afghanistan have inquired about the photo, including some from the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne Division, stationed at Bagram Airfield.

“It’s just got some quality about it,” said Glick. “Sure, I wouldn’t mind getting rich off of it, but that probably isn’t happening. It makes people feel better. It makes them feel warm and fuzzy. That’s what it’s for.”

What a fantastic picture!
