Is the man in the second row waving to say, “Hey, there are white guys in the military, too”? Or is he saying, “I’m actually Filipino; it’s the pale faceless folks in the third row who are the white men who do most of the fighting and dying”?
There's one guy who initially looks white, but I think he's East Asian.This kind of reminds me of the World Trade Center Fireman Memorial when they wanted to replace all the white firemen in the sculpture with diversity.
