Made in America - Part II

Below are a handful of photographs I made during Bloomberg News assignments earlier in the year. My travels took me to farms, distilleries, breweries, and grocery stores to name a few. It's always a fun time learning where things come from. Here's Part One.

Troop Returns for Getty Images

As the Pentagon continues to withdraw combat forces from Afghanistan, Kentucky's two major Army Posts have seen thousands of troops return home to their friends and families. Over the past year I've been able to cover a handful of military homecomings for Getty Images at both Fort Knox and Fort Campbell. While most homecoming ceremonies follow the same script, witnessing all of the smiles, tears, and hugs between reunited families never get old.
