Magical Moment 535, "Rose in a Canteen"

Sorting through a box of old photographs, I came across this one...

Taken on a disposal camera about 7 years ago during some Army training as a cadet. I recall feeling very homesick, as it was a new experience, and very exhausted. I found a rose (I have no idea where) and kept it alive in my canteen of water for a few days before I was forced to throw it away during a room inspection.

A vibrant red rose, bringing beauty to drab olive green.
