This is "The Sullivan Brothers" statue in the Grout Museum in Waterloo, (IA). John, the train engineer, had worked 6 days in a row, and under the new safety rules, had to take 48 hours off. So we took off to stay a night in Waterloo.
I think Samantha's fiance, Marty, is in this picture below, which we found in the Museum, also. It shows the "Red Bull" National Guard unit (First Battalion, 133rd Infantry) arriving home from Iraq in July, 2007. We were surprised to see this because most of the exhibits were from longer ago.
