South Carolina was declared a State of Emergency this week as a huge snow storm came through. Last night, the SC National Guard rolled into town to help transport hospital workers to and from work. It was surreal to see Humvees and soldiers in downtown Greenville. And, as I started to think about it, it was the first time I had photographed National Guard units deployed locally. I have photographed the Guard many times, but usually as they leave or return from the war. These are a few of my favorites.
