Every picture tells a story


The military usually provides an official looking picture along with the notification when a soldier dies. They’re usually serious looking kids, sitting in their military gear, before an American flag, and the picture offers no glimpse at all into the person behind the name.

Today, however, the picture furnished by the Minnesota National Guard of Pfc. Jacob J. Fairbanks, 22, of St. Paul tells us a lot about who he was and what his loss means.
