U.S. Defense Department Releases Best Military Photos Of 2012

The Defense Department released some of their best photos from 2012. The photos, taken by military men and women, show the good but dangerous work our military people perform every day.

The men and women of the U.S. military serve in operations around the world. They also are family members, athletes and sports fans who embrace life. Military photographers provide a visual record of their activities. In this review, Year in Photos 2012, we offer a selection of some of the most compelling pictures they produced.

You can see all of the photos via the below link: 

In the above photo taken by through a night-vision device during an air assault mission, U.S. Army paratroopers and Afghan soldiers travel aboard a CH-47 Chinook helicopter during an air assault mission in Afghanistan's Ghazni province, May 4, 2012.

The photo was taken by Army Sgt. Michael J. MacLeod.

Note: I began in military journalism, writing news and features for U.S. Navy and Defense Department publications, and over the years I worked with many fine and professional military and DoD civilian photographers.
