Photo of the Day

In this photo taken Wednesday, March 20, 2013 in Raeford, N.C., Tracy Dice Johnson looks through a "widow's box" that platoon mates of her wife prepared during the service they had for their fallen comrade. When her wife was killed in Afghanistan in 2012, Dice Johnson, a North Carolina National Guardswoman, heard about it from her sister-in-law. Although Donna Johnson had listed Dice as her next-of-kin, Army casualty officers informed Johnson’s mother of her death first because of a federal law that prohibits the U.S. government from recognizing same-sex unions.
