The APME has honored this photograph as National member Photo of the Month for April 2014.
Thanks to Kevin Martin at the Knoxville News Sentinel for judging this month.
Here is what Kevin had to say about the winning image:
“The photo of Lucy Hamlin leaning on her husband’s foot illustrates the universal fear and tension of military personnel and their families after a second attack at Fort Hood. The smart use of framing by Austin American-Statesman photographer Deborah Cannon allows the reader to connect with Hamlin’s body language and share in her frightening experience."
Below is the link to all images entered for April and the winner is slide #82.

An Iraq War veteran being treated for mental illness was the gunman who opened fire at Fort Hood, killing three people and wounding 16 others before committing suicide, in an attack on the same Texas military base where more than a dozen people were slain in 2009, authorities said.
