"All men are brothers, like the seas throughout the world; So why do winds and waves clash so fiercely everywhere?" --Emperor Hirohito



Remembering Corporal Leonard Hayworth 


life:

“Corporal Leonard Hayworth … shows his utter frustration as he has crawled back from his position only to learn that the ammo is gone. Coda: At the last moment, supplies arrived and the men were able to hold their position.”

“Corporal Leonard Hayworth … shows his utter frustration as he has crawled back from his position only to learn that the ammo is gone. At the last moment, supplies arrived and the men were able to hold their position.”.Weeks after taking his now-famous picture  of a weeping Corp. Leonard Hayworth, David Douglas Duncan handed Hayworth a copy of the September 18, 1950, issue of LIFE magazine. There, taking up almost all of page 41, was that very photograph of Hayworth himself, crying.“Hayworth looked at that huge picture of himself, in the biggest photo magazine in the world,” Duncan says. “He didn’t say anything. He just smiled. He looked like Errol Flynn, about six-foot-three, a tall, handsome Marine. And no one’s saying anything, none of his buddies are saying a word, looking at this picture of him with tears running down his cheeks, and after a while an old sergeant behind him says, ‘We all cry sometimes.’ 

The next day, on September 25th — the three-month anniversary of the start of the Korean War — a North Korean sniper shot Corporal Leonard Hayworth dead.
