U.S. Army Cpl. Douglas Dalton, medic, and his wife Spc. Megan Dalton, radiology specialist, both with Company C. 801st Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), talk with each other next to field litter ambulances on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan, Aug. 11, 2013.
