YEAR in PHOTOS 2005

Friday December 30, 2005

The Army Homepage, www.army.mil, proudly unveiled it's annual compendium of the year's best photos, "Year in Photos 2005" . Special efforts were taken to secure the rights to the iconic Soundtrack "Like a Rock" by Bob Seger.
The technical team spent a significant amount of time choreographing the photos to the lyrics.

Special thanks to Mr. Seger and his staff for their cooperation in making this a highly successful production, and to the many wonderful military and Department of Defense photojournalists whose daily photos comprise this compelling story of our American Soldiers.
