Perhaps your eyes were immediately drawn to the photo hanging on the wall behind Jackson.

What’s the deal with that photo? Brian Tinsman of Redskins.com wrote about it last February.
The above photo was voted the 2012 Marine Corps Top Shot, and was taken during Operation Tageer Shamal (Pashto for “Winter Offensive”) in Helmand province, Afghanistan.
Deep in the heart of conflict, two Marines and their loyal dog “Blue” found the peaceful serenity of a nap. The photographer, Cpl. Reece Lodder had his camera nearby, but said he paused and took in the scene before snapping a photo.
