    Judge Comment: Really interesting insight into the head of someone with PTSD, The subject's fierce pride for the flag really comes across. I think this story brings a lot of questions about the proper care of war memorials of any kind.

    Judge Comment: Nice piece on a cold case that seems like it could have been solved if today's science had been available at the time of the murder. Great job setting the scene and explaining why the case seems to have not been solved.
